IN THE HEIGHTS Virtual Book Launch

By Lauren Marshall on May 11, 2021

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.

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 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.

Your ticket ($55) includes admission to this exclusive event, a hardcover copy of In the Heights: Finding Home as well as sales tax, shipping, and handling. You can purchase your ticket in-store or here on our website. If you would like your copy of the book shipped to you, please use coupon code HEIGHTS to ensure you are not charged an additional shipping fee.

Please contact us with any questions. We can’t wait to see you there!
