In the Heights virtual book launch, with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegria Hudes, and Jeremy McCarter

Tuesday, June 15th, 2021, 8pm ET. Online only, via Zoom. Registration required:

Lights 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. 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.

Gibson's Bookstore is pleased to partner with Random House and bookstores across the country for this exclusive conversation and book launch featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegria Hudes, Jeremy McCarter, and America Ferrera as they share uplifting conversation celebrating their new book, In the Heights: Finding Home.

Join Miranda, Hudes, McCarter, and Ferrera for a very special In the Heights Virtual Book Launch on Tuesday, June 15 from 8:00 to 9:00pm ET 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.

Please note: Due to the pandemic the post office is being challenged by increased volume, staffing issues, and safety measures. Most orders within the US deliver in about ten business days from the date the book ships. International orders usually take longer and vary depending on the country of destination. We cannot guarantee the exact date of delivery, however, will do our best to make it as swift as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
