Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward’s Love Story Shared by Daughter Melissa Newman

November 9, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM


Author Talk with Melissa Newman: Head Over Heels: Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman

Thursday, November 9th @ 7:00 PM at the Ridgefield Library


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 oversized book chronicles their romance through the photographs of an impressive list of contributors, too many to list here.

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. This book is an homage to the possibility and power of love.

Books on the Common will have copies for sale and signing.
