WEST HOLLYWOOD — Filmmaker Noah Baumbach will be discussing and signing Marriage Story at Book Soup.

Marriage Story is filmmaker Noah Baumbach’s portrait of a marriage breaking up and a family staying together. The film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, co-starring Laura Dern, Alan Alda, and Ray Liotta.

The companion book, a box set from Assouline, contains two volumes—one for Nicole, one for Charlie—that allow the reader to see the film’s narrative through each half of the couple’s eyes.

WeHo Women’s Book Club: Camille Di Maio’s ‘The Way of Beauty’ – Mar 3

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — On Tuesday, March 3 at the West Hollywood Park Sky Room, the WeHo Women’s Book Club will discuss The Way of Beauty by Camille Di Maio. In celebration of the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote, the discussion will focus on women’s suffrage in the context of the book. Book Description:

“Vera Keller, the daughter of German immigrants in turn-of-the-century New York City, finds her life upended when the man she loves becomes engaged to another woman. But Angelo Bellavia has also inadvertently opened up Vera’s life to unexpected possibilities. Angelo’s new wife, Pearl, the wealthy daughter of a clothing manufacturer, has defied her family’s expectations by devoting herself to the suffrage movement.

In Pearl, Vera finds an unexpected dear friend…and a stirring new cause of her own. But when Pearl’s selfless work pulls her farther from Angelo and their son, the life Vera craved is suddenly within her reach—if her conscience will allow her to take it.

Her choice will define not only her future but also that of her daughter, Alice.

Vera and Alice—a generation and a world apart—are bound by the same passionate drive to fulfill their dreams. As first mother and then daughter come of age in a city that is changing as rapidly as its skyline, they’ll each discover that love is the only constant.”

Tuesday, March 3, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  West Hollywood Park Sky Room, 647 N. San Vicente Boulevard Admission is free, but space is limited- RSVPs are encouraged via meetup.com.
