Chicago-area native Kathy Griffin will be part of a panel discussion on "ageism in Hollywood" according to a Deadline report.
The panel, taking place on Friday 7 p.m. at The London West Hollywood, also features Lesley Ann Warren and JoBeth Williams, among others. Sharon Lawrence of 'NYPD Blue' fame will moderate the conversation.
Griffin, 55, says she's been hearing ageist comments her entire professional life as a comedian-actress. "Hollywood is behind the curve on women's issues and on who their audience is," said Griffin in the Deadline report.
Griffin revealed the cover of her upcoming book, "Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins," to People magazine Thursday. The book is set for release on Nov. 22.
