Pam Grier, hailed by Quentin Tarantino as cinema’s first female action hero, will sign her new memoir, Foxy: My Life in Three Acts, on Wednesday, June 16, at 5 p.m. at Outwrite Books in Midtown. From hiding guns in her giant afro in Foxy Brown to her GLBT-friendly portrayal of Kit Porter on the Showtime hit The L Word, Grier’s eclectic career is by design.

“The actor acts,” Grier said, quoting pioneering actor and director Constantin Stanislavski. “The actor works in all mediums, and I want to explore every one of them.”

Along with recollections of her 40 years in film and television, Grier also writes about her tumultuous love affairs with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Freddie Prinze and Richard Pryor and her battle with cancer.
