Author Talk: Melissa Newman, Head Over Heels

Thursday, November 9th @ 7:00pm:   Look inside the private world of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, one of America’s most iconic couples, in this extraordinary and deeply personal collection of intimate photographs affectionately curated by their daughter Melissa Newman. Their love story is the stuff of Hollywood legend. Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman became not only movie stars and stage actors, but also artistic collaborators, political activists and philanthropists whose legacies are expansive and enduringly modern. 

This visually immersive oversize book chronicles their romance through the photographs of an impressive list of contributors.  These striking images—many rare and some never before published—are accompanied by snapshots, letters, handwritten notes and family treasures. Together they beautifully illuminate the connection between two complex, passionate artists who opened their hearts and minds to each other for over half a century.  Head Over Heels: A Love Affair in Words and Pictures is an homage to the possibility and power of love.

Melissa Newman is an artist, teacher, singer and occasional writer, based in Westport Connecticut.
