Award-winning actor, director, producer, and activist Kerry Washington will embark on an eight-city book tour this fall tied to the release of her memoir, THICKER THAN WATER (On Sale: September 26, 2023; Little, Brown Spark).

Readers will spend an evening with one of Hollywood’s most influential stars for an intimate conversation spotlighting her experiences both on and off-screen. Kerry will take audiences behind the scenes of her extraordinary life – as an artist, an advocate, an entrepreneur, a mother, a daughter, a wife, and a Black woman. On tour, Kerry will share the lessons learned from healing childhood wounds, how she embraces adversity, and the wisdom gained from her storied career. Guests will embrace the journey to find their truest selves and a deeper sense of belonging in the world.

The THICKER THAN WATER Tour kicks off in Kerry’s hometown of the Bronx, and continues with stops in Detroit, MI; New York, NY; Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; Atlanta, GA; Los Angeles, CA; London, UK; and Manchester, UK. The tour is being developed and overseen by Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and produced by Live Nation Urban.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday 16 June at 10:00 AM local time. Tickets can be purchased at and
