RJ Julia Bookseller in Madison is hosting the event at the Morgan School in Clinton at 7 p.m.
The book signing was originally going to be held at the Clinton Town Hall Auditorium, but that venue sold out and the event was moved to the auditorium of the Morgan School.
“In ‘This is Me,’ Chrissy Metz shares her story with a raw honesty that will leave readers both surprised but also inspired. Infused with the same authenticity she brings to her starring role, Chrissy’s ‘This is Me’ is so much more than your standard Hollywood memoir or collection of personal essays. She embraces the spirit of Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes, and shares how she has applied the lessons she learned from both setbacks and successes. A born entertainer, Chrissy finds light in even her darkest moments, and leaves the reader feeling they are spending time with a friend who gets it,” the listing on RJ Julia’s website says.
Metz said her role in "This Is Us" has changed her life and she is "embracing the idea that people could be inspired by me."
The book signing starts at 7 p.m. and the school is located at 71 Killingworth Turnpike. Tickets previously purchased will be honored at the new location.
“This is Us” airs on NBC Connecticut.
