Elizabeth Taylor: The Grit & Glamour of an Icon

#1 New York Times bestselling author of "The Residence" and "First Women," Kate Anderson Brower, will discuss the first ever authorized biography of the most famous movie star of the twentieth century, Elizabeth Taylor.

No celebrity rivals Elizabeth Taylor’s glamour and guts or her level of fame. And her private life was even more compelling than her Oscar-winning on-screen performances. During her seventy-nine years of rapid-fire love and loss she was married eight times to seven different men. She is the ultimate survivor. And she became the first major celebrity activist to lead the fight against HIV/AIDS. A co-founder of amfAR, she raised more than $100 million for research and patient care.

“Because she was the most famous woman in the world, everyone thinks they know her,” said Elizabeth’s estate in a statement. “We can assure you that they don’t. Kate Andersen Brower will lean into her journalistic background and curiosity to delight readers and introduce them to an Elizabeth only those closest to her knew.”

Kate Andersen Brower is a CNN contributor and covered the Obama administration for Bloomberg News. She is also a former CBS News staffer and Fox News producer. Kate has written for the New York Times, Vanity Fair, and the Washington Post and is a resident of Bethesda.
