Hyperion has acquired a memoir by Sissy Spacek, written in “her authentic, big-hearted voice.”
The book is scheduled for a 2012 release with the tentative title, Barefoot Stories. Jim Stein of the Innovative Artists Talent and Literary Agency negotiated the deal with editor Sarah Landis. The deal includes audio rights. Landis will edit the book.
The press release offers this quote from the soon-to-be-author: “I’m thrilled to be writing this book. I just wish I had studied harder in English class.”
