Andrews will discuss her television career at the 6:30 PM event, according to the Paley Center's website.

Andrews had major TV success in the 1957 musical "Cinderella." She also appeared in variety specials with Carol Burnett and her own Emmy-winning variety series, "The Julie Andrews Hour." Her dramatic TV roles include "Our Sons" and "On Golden Pond."
Julie Andrews — who was born in Surrey, England — starred on Broadway in the original productions of The Boyfriend, My Fair Lady and Camelot, the stage version of Victor/Victoria, and in the Off-Broadway Stephen Sondheim revue, Putting It Together. She won an Academy Award for her work in "Mary Poppins" and Oscar nominations for "The Sound of Music" and "Victor/Victoria."
