LIVESTREAM EVENT: In the Heights Book Launch featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and Jeremy McCarter; moderated by America Ferrera

LIVESTREAM AUTHOR EVENT OVERVIEW:  Rainy Day Books & Penguin Random House Present In the Heights Virtual Book Launch featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and Jeremy McCarter.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Before Hamilton became a global phenomenon, before Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name, a little show called In the Heights shook up Broadway with its hip-hop and salsa soundtrack and big, bilingual heart.  In the new book In the Heights: Finding Home, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and Jeremy McCarter tell the story of the show’s humble beginnings, from rehearsals in a bookstore basement to the Broadway smash (and soon-to-be feature film!) that created an unbreakable community and a new kind of family for everyone involved. 

Join Miranda, Hudes, and McCarter for a very special In the Heights Virtual Book Launch on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, starting at 7:00 PM Central Time, on Zoom.  Sure to be an unforgettable conversation on creativity, community, and finding home, this is your chance to hear directly from the creative team behind the timeless story of how one neighborhood—Washington Heights—can speak to the world. 

Special guest moderator for this event will be award-winning actor, director and producer America Ferrera, who joined the authors in narrating the upcoming audiobook.

Your Event Registration includes Admission to this Exclusive Event and 1 Hardcover of In the Heights: Finding Home, plus Sales Tax.  USPS Priority Mail Shipping is available for an additional fee.
