An Evening with Taylor Jenkins Reid

By Glen Ridge Book Club (other events)

Thursday, February 20 2020 6:00 PM 10:00 PM

Spend the evening with Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of New York Times bestseller and Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine Book Club pick, Daisy Jones & The Six

Join us Thursday evening, February 20th, at the Glen Ridge Country Club as we welcome Taylor Jenkins Reid, our next speaker for the Glen Ridge Book Club.

     Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the real reason why they split at the absolute height of their popularity...until now.

     Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go-Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it's the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she's twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things. 

     Another band getting noticed is The Six, led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she's pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.

     Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

     The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

Taylor Jenkins Reid will speak to the group as well as answer questions from attendees and sign copies of her books.  A copy of the trade paperback is included in the cost of the ticket and will be available for pick up before the event.  Light refreshments will be served (included in the ticket price) and a cash bar will be open as well.

The cost of each ticket is $23 (+ small handling fee).

Doors open at 6pm and we will begin the program at 7pm.
