Emmy Award winning news anchor Alisyn Camerota and actress Stephanie Szostak will be in conversation about Ms. Camerota’s new memoir.
Combat Love is Alisyn Camerota’s story of growing up, longing for stability and attachment as the foundation of her family crumbles. Set in the Jersey Shore during the pleasure-seeking 1980s, Camerota finds the belonging she craves courtesy of a local punk rock band named Shrapnel and their diehard fans. Combat Love chronicles her near-misses and misadventures at clubs like CBGB and Max’s Kansas City, coupled with the sex, drugs, and punk rock of 1980s New Jersey. By the time she leaves home at sixteen, it feels like home had left her long ago.
Two-time Emmy-award-winning Camerota retraces her steps down an often-gritty path toward her dream of becoming a journalist. At times heartbreaking and pulse-pounding, Combat Love is an inspiration for anyone who’s ever searched for that elusive place called home.
Elm Street Books will be onsite with copies of Combat Love for sale.
