The Geraldo Show: A Memoir is written by journalist and media personality, Geraldo Rivera, and published by BenBella Books. The eye-opening autobiography unpacks, for readers, his award-winning, emotionally charged and controversial 48-years in the news business. The man behind the media personality tells the heartfelt stories of his far-flung adventures in war and peace, his triumphant 15-year marriage to wife and partner Erica, and his wild bunch of family and eclectic friends who range from comic Cheech Marin to Donald J. Trump, the current President of the United States.
Book lovers met Geraldo Rivera to purchase signed copies of The Geraldo Show: A Memoir at the authors book signing plus cocktail reception. All proceeds were donated to the East Hampton Library which raised a record breaking $400,000 in support of essential community programs and services. While enjoying delicious hors d’oeuvres and fine wines, guests perused recent titles and mingled with popular authors. Following the lively cocktail reception, 24 hospitable authors welcomed 600 guests to lavish dinner parties, with one or more guest authors, at their lovely homes across the Hamptons.
