Jamie Bernstein will offer a rare look at her father and their family, following the 100th anniversary (1918-2018) of Leonard Bernstein’s 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, “Lenny” was an enormous celebrity during one of the headiest periods of American cultural life. Ms. Bernstein’s deeply moving memoir is a riveting story about one of the greatest Americans of the modern age.
