NEW YORK -- Julie Andrews' next memoir will tell the backstory of "Mary Poppins," ''The Sound of Music" and other beloved works during her years as one of the world's most popular entertainers.

Hachette Books announced Monday that the Oscar-winning actress is working on a follow-up to the 2008 release "Home," which covers her childhood and early years in show business. The next book, currently untitled, begins in the 1960s and takes readers through her next three decades, including her many hit films and her marriage to director Blake Edwards.

The new book is scheduled for September 2017. Andrews recently helped celebrate the 50th anniversary of "The Sound of Music," one of the most popular movies of all time.
