Media Advisory: Mother Dolores Hart to Speak in Washington, DC

(PRWEB) June 05, 2013

WHAT – Mother Dolores Hart, former Hollywood star, current prioress of the Abbey of Regina Laudis, and still an active and voting member of the Academy will be on hand this week in Washington, DC to promote her new memoir, THE EAR OF THE HEART.

WHEN – She will be available at two public events. The CIC will host her at 6 p.m. ET Thursday, June 6. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception will host her June 9 at 1:30 p.m. ET in Memorial Hall. She will discuss her book and have a book signing.

WHERE – The Catholic Information Center is located at 1501 K Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20005-1401. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is located at 400 Michigan Avenue, Northeast Washington, D.C. 20017.

WHY – Mother’s recently released memoir is a fascinating account of her life, co-written with her lifelong friend, Richard DeNeut. The book chronicles her successful acting career, alongside such notable Hollywood royalty as Elvis Presley, Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn and Myrna Loy, among others. She stunned Hollywood in 1963, when at the peak of her career, she decided to enter the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Conn. She left the glamorous world of acting that she had dreamed of since childhood in order to answer a mysterious call she heard with the “ear of the heart”. While contracted for another film and engaged to be married, she abandoned everything to become a bride of Christ.

ABOUT MOTHER – She is the prioress of the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Conn. Dolores Hart was a bright and beautiful college student when she made her film debut with Elvis Presley in Paramount’s 1957 Loving You. She acted in nine more movies with other big stars such as Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn, Warren Beatty and Myrna Loy. She also gave a Tony-nominated performance in the Broadway play The Pleasure of His Company and appeared in TV shows, including The Virginian and Playhouse 90. An important, life-altering chapter in her life occurred while playing Saint Clare in the movie Francis of Assisi, filmed on location in Italy. In 1963, while contracted for another film and engaged to be married, she abandoned everything to enter a contemplative monastery. Mother remains a voting member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
