ArtPower At UC San Diego Presents: An Evening With Sir Patrick Stewart
On Dec. 7, 2023, audiences are invited to join beloved actor Sir Patrick Stewart for an evening of inspiring conversation in celebration of his long-awaited memoir, “Making It So”.
From his acclaimed stage triumphs to iconic on screen work in the Star Trek and X-Men franchises, Stewart has captivated audiences around the world and across multiple generations. Now, he presents MAKING IT SO, a revealing portrait of an artist whose astonishing life – from his humble beginnings in Yorkshire, England to the heights of Hollywood and worldwide acclaim – proves a story as exuberant, definitive, and enduring as the author himself.
