Book Fair: Jamie Bernstein - Famous Father Girl
6600 W. Maple Rd.
West Bloomfield, MI 48322
In her literary debut, broadcaster and filmmaker Jamie Bernstein offers an intimate, gossipy memoir of growing up as the eldest child of renowned composer Leonard Bernstein. When a second-grade classmate calls her “famous father girl” Jamie doesn’t yet realize the impact of her father’s fame – but it slowly dawns on her. This often hilarious and deeply moving tale is an intimate lens into a complex and sometimes troubled man, the family he raised, and his music that became the soundtrack to their entwined lives.
