Garry Marshall discusses My Happy Days in Hollywood ($25.00). Once called a "legend in his own time slot," Marshall has been among the most successful comedy writers, directors, and producers for more than five decades. His new memoir details his involvement with some of the most beloved TV sitcoms of all-time, The Odd Couple, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, and Mork & Mindy.
Garry Marshall is a veteran producer, director, and writer of film, television, and theater. He learned his craft writing jokes for Lucille Ball, Dick Van Dyke, and Danny Thomas. He also directed some of America’s favorite romantic comedies including The Flamingo Kid, Pretty Woman, and The Princess Diaries.
For this special event, Garry Marshall will be in conversation with Lori Marshall, his daughter and co-author. Lori Marshall has written eleven produced children’s plays, co-written two books, and contributed to the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Chicago Tribune. Like her father, she is a graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. She has been writing with her father since the eighth grade, when he helped her punch up an English paper on Franz Kafka.
