Memoir by Award-Winning Actor Sir Patrick Stewart Coming Soon

Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, will publish the memoir of award-winning and globally renowned actor Sir Patrick Stewart, it was announced today by Jennifer Bergstrom, SVP & Publisher for Gallery Books Group.

The yet-to-be-titled book will be a revealing and heartwarming look into Stewart’s life and times, including his iconic roles on stage, television, and film in a career spanning seven decades. Stewart’s legendary career includes his work as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, his famed Star Trek character that he now portrays on CBS All Access’ hit series Star Trek: Picard, which he also executive produces; seven films across Marvel’s X-Men global film franchise, including his critically-acclaimed work in 2017’s Logan; his three-time Olivier Award-winning stage work in Hamlet, Antony and Cleopatra, and A Christmas Carol, and Tony-nominated performance in Broadway’s Macbeth; and countless additional credits including his Golden Globe-nominated starring role on STARZ’s Blunt Talk, inspired voice work on American Dad, and his Emmy-nominated performances in Moby Dick, Hamlet and HBO’s Extras, to name but a few.

In the memoir, Stewart will also reflect on his childhood in Yorkshire, England, ​marked by poverty and domestic violence; as well as his lifelong political advocacy and ongoing charity work.

On acquiring Sir Patrick Stewart’s memoir, Jennifer Bergstrom commented, “No other British working actor enjoys such career variety, universal respect, and unending popularity—as witnessed through his seminal roles and his millions of fans across social media–it goes without saying that his long-awaited memoir will be a blockbuster bestseller.”

Regarding his memoir, Sir Patrick Stewart remarked, “The idea of writing a memoir based on my life and career has been in my mind for several years, but always the demands of work have pushed it into the background. Today there are no demands, nor is there a prediction when there might be. I am caught in the middle of shooting a new series, Star Trek: Picard, and I passionately want to see it through, but in the meantime…what? Well, I have a beautiful study in our house in Los Angeles, sunny and peaceful. I am 80 in a little over two weeks’ time. I have just treated myself to a gorgeous office chair. And…I have the time. But most important, I am loving what I am doing, even though I never thought I would or could.”

​The book will also be published by Simon & Schuster UK, Simon & Schuster Australia and the audio edition, read by Stewart, will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio in a deal brokered by Jennifer Joel of ICM.
