Funny, Sissy Spacek doesn’t look Jewish…


Luckily, you don’t have to be Jewish to appear at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. In her new book, My Extraordinary Ordinary Life, Spacek offers up details about her personal and professional life, from growing up in small-town Texas to meeting her husband on the set of Badlands to eventually settling in the non-glamorous rural Virginia hills. Sara Nelson, books editor of O, The Oprah Magazine, will interview Spacek. Sunday, May 6, at 3 p.m. Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. 600 I St. NW. Cost is $15 for one ticket to the discussion, $30 for one ticket and one book, or $37 for two tickets and a book. Call 202-408-3100 or visit
