Olivia Harrison Author Events in Los Angeles and New York

13 Mar 2023

This weekend, Olivia Harrison took part in a reader event at the famous Los Angeles bookstore, Book Soup. Appearing there on Saturday evening, Harrison recited poetry from Came the Lightening: Twenty Poems for George, her new book of twenty poems marking the twentieth year since George's passing.

My husband-to-be came to visit. I tried to explain
Wanted to prepare him, was I ashamed
That we were happy but humble, worked hard for that roof?
He said, 'It's a mansion compared to my youth'.
- extract from "She"

Joining Olivia at the sold-out event on Hollywood's Sunset Strip was music journalist and Genesis US editor, Rona Elliot, who moderated an insightful Q&A about the work and how it came to be written. The event closed with Olivia signing copies for the readers attending.

There is still limited time available to book your place at Olivia's next appearance at Rizzoli Bookstore at Broadway, New York, where she will be joined by Grammy-winning music historian Ashley Kahn.
