Oscar winner and stage veteran Jessica Lange’s first children’s book It Is About a Little Bird, will be released by Sourcebooks in 2013, according to The New York Times.
The work, which is based on a book that she created for her own grandchildren and which will use photographs that she took and illustrated by hand, tells the story of two young girls who visit their grandmother on a farm and learn about her childhood in France.
Lange has been seen on stage in A Streetcar Named Desire and The Glass Menagerie. She won Oscars for her performances in Tootsie and Blue Sky, and an Emmy Award for her portrayal of Edith Bouvier in HBO's Grey Gardens.
She is nominated for a 2012 Emmy Award for her work in American Horror Story, for which she has won numerous honors including the Golden Globe, and will be part of the show’s second season on FX.
