An Afternoon with Jamie Bernstein
Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein Sunday October 6, 2019
1:30 PM until 2:30 PM
Jamie Bernstein is an author, narrator, and filmmaker who has transformed a lifetime of loving music into a career of sharing her knowledge and excitement with others.
In a deeply intimate and broadly evocative memoir, the eldest daughter of revered composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein offers a rare look at her father on the centennial of his birth.
The composer of On the Town and West Side Story, chief conductor of the New York Philharmonic, television star, humanitarian, friend of the powerful and influential, and the life of every party, Leonard Bernstein was an enormous celebrity during one of the headiest periods of American cultural life, as well as the most protean musician in twentieth-century America. In Famous Father Girl, Bernstein mines the emotional depths of her childhood and invites us into her family's private world.
