The public event will also spotlight a guest appearance by adult industry superstar and Deeper studio director Kayden Kross, who will be on hand as the moderator for a Q&A panel discussion and conversation about Ward’s career path as the first and only mainstream actress to cross over into adult industry success.
“It’s been a long road to get to where I am today, and I am so pleased to be able to tell my story through the pages of Rated X, and I look forward to sharing my personal anecdotes with friends and fans at Brooklyn’s Powerhouse Arena,” said Ward.
The award-winning adult film performer, actress, model and cosplay personality, whose iconic entertainment career has spanned nearly 30 years since breaking into the business as a teen, openly recounts her highs, lows, accomplishments and indignities as the first-ever mainstream screen star to find smashing success in the taboo world of porn.
Sharing her stories in Rated X has not only proved to be empowering for Ward, it’s also been “one of the proudest moments of my career”, with early success on Amazon’s pre-sale lists and an acclaimed ‘Kirkus Star’ from literary tastemaker Kirkus Reviews.
The New York signing is part of Ward’s upcoming author signing events in September; she is also scheduled to make a promotional signing appearance Tuesday, September 6 at Los Angeles’ Barnes & Noble flagship store at The Grove.
