Natalie Portman

Festivals & Fairs

With Natalie Portman's Fables, the Academy Award-winning actress, director, producer and activist adds children's book author to her list of credits. In the book, illustrated by artist Janna Mattia, Portman retells three classic fables and imbues them with empathy, inclusivity, and humor.

During this event, intended for an adult audience, Portman will speak about her motivations and goals for writing the book, her belief in the power of storytelling to change minds, and more.

The fables include The Tortoise and the Hare, The Three Little Pigs, and Country Mouse and City Mouse. From realizing that there is no "right" way to live to respecting our planet and learning what really makes someone a winner, the messages at the heart of Natalie Portman's Fables are modern takes on timeless life lessons about hard work, perseverance, hubris, and abundance.

Portman's credits include Leon: The Professional, Black Swan, Cold Mountain, Closer, V for Vendetta, the Star Wars franchise prequels, A Tale of Love and Darkness, Jackie and the forthcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. Born in Jerusalem, Israel, she is a graduate of Harvard University and lives with her family in Los Angeles.
