IN THE HEIGHTS Virtual Book Launch

Event date: 
Tuesday, June 15, 2021 - 7:00pm

In the Heights Virtual Book Launch Featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara  Alegría Hudes, and Jeremy McCarterLights up on Washington Heights!

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 from 8:00 to 9:00pm ET (7:00 to 8:00pm CT) 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.
