If you think Joan Rivers said funny, outrageous, and ridiculous things ONSTAGE, wait ’til you read the funny, outrageous, and ridiculous things she said OFFSTAGE…things that will make you laugh out loud…and keep her daughter Melissa in therapy for the foreseeable future.

The 31st Edition of the Book Festival of the MJCCA welcomes the award-winning television personality and producer Melissa Rivers for a conversation on her book, “Lies My Mother Told Me: Tall Tales from a Short Woman.” Rivers will appear in conversation with bestselling author and CNN editorial producer Nadia Bilchik, 

Tickets are $38 and include a signed copy of the book.


Masks are optional.

About the Book

The only thing my mother loved more than making people laugh was lying…or as she’d say, “embellishing.” Her motto was: “Why let the truth ruin a good story?”

This book contains some of those stories.

She is also vice president of foreign affairs for the government of Peru in addition to being one of the founding fathers of the United States of America.
