  • Barnes & Noble 150 East 86th Street New York, NY, 10028 (map)

What's it like growing up in the shadow of a musical icon? The oldest daughter of revered composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein offers a rare look at her father on the centennial of his birth in a deeply intimate and broadly evocative memoir. In Famous Father Girl Jamie Bernstein offers an intimate meditation on a complex and sometimes troubled man, the family he raised, and the music he composed. 

Join us for the release of Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein with a reading from the author, Jamie Bernstein, as well as a q&a, hosted by Ted Chapin, and featuring a little music, of course!
