Carl Reiner appears at Book Soup to sign his new memoir on Monday September 15, 2014 at 7:00 PM!

Press Release:

The amazing thing about the human memory is that, just when one thinks one has recalled everything worth recalling, the memory regenerates itself and serves up a whole new eminently worthy batch. At least that’s how it works when you’re dealing with the legendary mind of Carl Reiner. In his 2013 memoir, I Remember Me, Carl treated us to ninety years of professional and personal anecdotes, ranging from witty, weird and heartwarming to insightful, informative, and always funny usually a combination of at least two, sometimes three or four, of the aforementioned. Carl had taken us on a nostalgic trip through every corner, every nook and cranny, of his life. Or so we thought. But over the next two years, new old memories kept coming and coming and coming until, before too long, another book was born. (Random Content)

Event Guidelines:

-The first 60 people to purchase I Just Remembered by Carl Reiner at Book Soup on September 15th will be issued a wristband which will allow them entry into the store for the discussion.
-An overflow crowd will be held outside and will join the line once the book signing starts.
