Actress Jennifer Garner, whose mother grew up on a farm near Locust Grove, is tackling a real-life role for an Apple TV series, “My Glory Was I Had Such Friends.”
The source material for the series is Amy Silverstein’s memoir that bears the same title. It delves into Silverstein’s experiences preparing for and recovering for a heart transplant with the help of her close circle of friends.
Silverstein is scheduled to speak at a Tuesday, June 30, virtual event hosted by The Pickup Line. The event, a Beauty & The Book live chat, begins at 6:30 p.m. You can register at bit.ly/3ie5eWo.
Silverstein will be speaking about the book, her experience and possibly will give insight into what to expect from the TV adaptation, according to a news release.
The Pickup Line is a women-owned newsletter started by former New York City reporters.
