 Mary Williams Biography

To say Mary Williams grew up in a troubled family in Oakland, CA, is an understatement. But, at age 13, she started spending summers at a children's camp run by Jane Fonda and her then-husband Tom Hayden and was eventually adopted by Fonda and went to live with the family in Santa Monica, CA. There, she thrived and lived a life of opportunity and adventure. The author of a children's book, "Brothers in Hope: The Story of the Lost Boys of Sudan," and articles for McSweeney’s and O magazine, Williams chronicles her journey of identity, redemption and forgiveness in her new memoir, "The Lost Daughter."

An award-winning actress, political activist, fitness guru and former fashion model, Jane Fonda has been in the public eye since the 1960's. She's won a Tony nod, two Oscars and an Emmy and, after taking a 15-year break, returned to the screen in the box office hit, Monster-in-Law, and in a recurring role on HBO's The Newsroom. She's also produced and starred in over 20 exercise videos. Passionate, outspoken and controversial, she co-founded the Women's Media Center, helped establish the Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health at Emory University and penned two memoirs.
