Ashley Judd pitches her book

Actress Ashley Judd promotes her memoir All Things Bitter and Sweet at a Barnes & Noble bookstore in New York City. The date was April 6, 2011. Kirkus Reviews called the book "a keenly felt memoir of a dysfunctional upbringing twined with an adult life of progressive social advocacy." Ashley Judd was born in 1968, and her first leading movie role was in the 1993 film Ruby in Paradise, so she was nearly two decades into her film career when this photo was taken.
