Mother Dolores Hart, former Hollywood starlet, stopping here on book signing tour


The Daughters of St. Paul in Culver City and Catholics in Media are sponsoring a book signing event with Mother Dolores Hart, OSB, on Saturday, June 29, 2013 at their bookstore, 3908 Sepulveda Blvd, 90230.

The event is open to the public, 1:00PM-4:00PM.

Dolores Hart stunned Hollywood in 1963, when after ten highly successful feature films, she chose to enter a contemplative monastery. Now, fifty years later, Mother Dolores gives this fascinating account of her life in her book, “The Ear of the Heart.”  She is the Prioress of the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, CT and a voting member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Mother will talk about the book, show clips from the Oscar nominated documentary “God is the Bigger Elvis” followed by a Q & A and book signing. Both the book ($24.95) and DVD ($21.95) will be available for purchase. Light refreshments will be served.

No RSVP is necessary.

Parking in front of the Pauline Center, at the rear of the building (off of Bentley Ave.) and behind the brown office building next door at 3912 Sepulveda Blvd (also accessible off of Bentley Ave.) We are located between Venice Blvd. and Washington Blvd.

    Oh my gosh! How I would love to be there!! For many years I had the privilege of visiting Regina Laudis, often stopping there for vespers. Earlier on, it was in the small rustic chapel, and then later in a new and beautiful chapel that was built as part of an expansion. I can’t recall the last time I was there, but I do recall that it was for a Good Friday service which was incredible. It had to be 10 years ago I think. What an exceptional community.

    I used to see Mother Dolores, when I would go to a summer fair that they would have. She would be around and about, and at that time, the actress Patricia Neal lived there, so you would see her too.

    The book looks great and I look forward to reading it. Have a great day with that signing! (And the HBO documentary was wonderful.)
