This is so cool. Oscar winning actress Octavia Spencer is going to kick off this year's University at Albany Speaker Series at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at SEFCU Arena on the school's uptown campus. Along with winning an Oscar for her role in The Help, she also starred in Hidden Figures and many other films and TV shows. She's also written two children's books. The event is open to the public and free, but you must have a ticket to get in. Click here to get the info on getting your ticket. I'm hoping to go...what about you?
