Famous Father Girl

Author Jamie Bernstein
Part of the Mandel JCC Book Festival

 

The oldest daughter of revered composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein, Jamie offers a rare look at her father on the centennial of his birth in a deeply intimate and broadly evocative memoir. Famous Father Girl is an intoxicating tale and an intimate meditation on a complex and sometimes troubled man, the family he raised, and the music he composed that became the soundtrack to their entwined lives. Deeply moving and often hilarious, Bernstein's beautifully written memoir is a great American story about one of the greatest Americans of the modern age. A short film precedes the author talk, and dessert reception & book signing follow the presentation.
