JCC Author & Speaker Series
Books will be available for purchase with your ticket, or may be purchased directly from the Twig Book Shop in the Pearl.
WED, Aug 19 | 7pm | Virtual
The oldest daughter of revered composer Leonard Bernstein offers a rare look at her father on the centenary of his birth - illuminating a man, a city, and an era that defined modern culture - in a deeply intimate and broadly evocative memoir reminiscent of Alexandra Styron’s Reading My Father and Richard Ford’s Between Them.
Jamie Bernstein is an author, broadcaster, filmmaker and concert narrator. In addition to writing articles and concert narrations, Jamie travels extensively, speaking about music as well as about her father, Leonard Bernstein. Jamie’s film documentary, Crescendo: the Power of Music, is viewable on iTunes.
