The Carrie star will open up about her upbringing and early career in Barefoot Stories, which is to be published in spring 2012.
And Spacek insists her tome will be different from the regular celebrity biographies on the bookshelf.
She tells USA Today, “I want it to be a collection of non-fiction short stories, so it’s not linear. You can pick it up just anywhere and read a story about some part of my life with images and photographs and artwork and things that I have done and collected and mean something to me.
“I have always felt so rooted in my childhood and it really helped me face the challenges and the adventures that we all face during our lifetime. And I hope that when people read it, they will think about their life and their childhood.”
