Julianne Moore Slated for Reading at BookHampton

Julianne Moore will read from her new book, "My Mom Is a Foreigner, But Not to Me" at BookHampton in East Hampton on Saturday at 4 p.m.

Julianne Moore, an Academy Award-winning actress and best-selling author who owns a house in Montauk, will read from her new children's book, "My Mom Is a Foreigner, But Not to Me," and sign copies for kids and their parents at BookHampton in East Hampton on Saturday.

Charline Spektor, the owner of the independent bookshop on Main Street, said Ms. Moore's appearance was scheduled at the last minute. Ms. Moore has done readings at the store before, for books in her "Freckleface Strawberry" series. 

Her latest picture book is about how first-generation children handle having mothers who may speak or dress differently, and how special that can be. "It speaks to a whole generation of kids," Ms. Spektor said. 

The reading will start at 4 p.m. on Saturday, followed by the signing. 

BookHampton will match the revenue from sales of Ms. Moore's book that day and make a donation to Project MOST, an after-school program for students in East Hampton and Springs.
