NVJBF: Marion Grodin - Standing Up: A Memoir of a Funny (Not Always) Life
Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
Fairfax, VA
Share this event:


Marion Grodin, daughter of funnyman Charles Grodin, knows firsthand that laughter is truly the best medicine, having not only survived breast cancer and divorce, but also, various addictions-including an inappropriate relationship with Haagen Dazs.

Her hilarious riffs include: the story of growing large breasts that appeared seemingly overnight (unfortunately, this happened during the summer that she spent on the set of King Kong with her father and Jeff Bridges on whom she developed a huge crush); her post divorce life, its slight weight gain and how she relied on her wise support group, her cats "BabyFighter" Edmond and "fashionably sporty, forensic expert" Snuggles. Marion integrates her diverse and challenging life experiences and unstoppable ability to make everything funny in a way that is both entertaining and helpful.

(Memoir/Humor) Book signing with author following presentation.

The Northern Virginia Jewish Book Festival (NVJBF) runs November 2-13 (plus a special event on the 18th). Ten authors visit the JCCNV in Fairfax. Plus family events and a book sale!
