Marie Osmond: Might As Well Laugh About It Now

Thursday, April 16

Posted // April 15,2009 -

A lifetime spent in the public eye—as part of a family that the world sometimes considers synonymous with Mormonism—is bound to inspire a few life lessons and some intriguing anecdotes. And Marie Osmond is ready to share them.

Following up her postpartum depression memoir Behind the Smile, Osmond takes a more lighthearted journey through her career high- and lowlights, from living in an Airstream trailer while on tour with the family to listening in on phone conversations between Elvis Presley and Mother Osmond to falling unconscious during a live broadcast of Dancing With the Stars. Along the way, she also discusses coping with a fire that destroyed her home and coming to terms with the end of her second marriage. But every story carries with it a boundless optimism and a self-deprecating sense of humor. Meet the author for a pair of signing events this week.

Marie Osmond @ Costco Wholesale, 648 E. 800 South, Orem, Thursday, April 16, 5-7 p.m.; Deseret Book, 1110 E. Fort Union Blvd., Midvale, Friday, April 17, 6 p.m.
