Barbra Streisand will appear at the opening night keynote reception for BookExpo America to promote her forthcoming book My Passion for Design on May 25. BookExpo America will run through May 27 at the Jacob K. Javits Center.

In the appearance, she will be interviewed about her first book, which will be published November 16 by Viking. In it, the singer explores the taste and style that have inspired her homes and collections. In particular, it focuses on the architecture and construction of her newest home, the dream refuge that she has longed for since the days when she shared a small Brooklyn apartment with her mother, brother, and grandparents.

Streisand appeared on Broadway in I Can Get It For You Wholesale and Funny Girl. Her films include Funny Girl, Funny Lady, Yentl, and Nuts. She has won the Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy Awards, a special Tony Award, and is a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honor.
