Actress Julie Andrews--like so many other celebrities, including Henry Winkler and Madonna--is also an author. She'll be making a couple of stops in the Twin Cities to sign copies of her new book, "The Very Fairy Princess Takes the Stage."

Andrews will be at the Red Balloon, 891 Grand Av., St. Paul, from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday May 12, and at Barnes & Noble Har Mar, Roseville, at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 13. Advance tickets with purchase of the book.

The restrictions are pretty stiff, if you want to see her: At Red Balloon, you need a ticket--which is free with the purchase of her book. At Barnes and Noble, wristbands securing you a spot will be given out beginning at 9 a.m. She'll sign one book per wristband--and only that book and nothing else. She will not personalize her autograph. And you are not allowed to take photos or shoot video.

(I think this means that asking her to sing "A Spoonful of Sugar" is also out of the question.)

Still, who doesn't love Julie Andrews? Rules or not, I'm betting on a packed house both times.
