The Seven Husbands Book Club

June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free – $10
Join the Virginia Club of New York for an in-person Book Club!

Join Book Club as we read and discuss The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. This riveting and heart-wrenching tale — filled with Old Hollywood glamour, ruthless ambition, and a great forbidden love — is a must-read!

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.
