Book Club with Ron Howard and Clint Howard -in-person and virtual!

This is a ticketed event. Click here to purchase tickets.

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard and actor Clint Howard, join book club readers Oct. 15 to discuss “The Boys: A Memoir of Hollywood and Family” with Times columnist Mary McNamara.

Their new memoir brings readers inside a childhood spent on TV, growing up amid sound stages, Hollywood legends and trained bears.

The Howard brothers rose to fame on popular shows of the 1960s and 70s: Ron Howard was turning six when he began playing Opie on “The Andy Griffith Show,” then went on to “Happy Days” and other roles before shifting to directing. Younger brother Clint starred on “Gentle Ben” on Sunday nights and appeared on other shows ranging from “The Mod Squad” to “Star Trek.”

In “The Boys,” Ron and Clint Howard reflect on the importance of family and share memories of their extraordinary childhood growing up on television. They also dig deeper, examining the industry with the perspective of life experience behind them.


Where: This in-person book club event will be held at L.A. Live’s Rooftop Terrace, a new outdoor venue atop the Grammy Museum in downtown Los Angeles.
