The cover of Melissa Newman's book HEAD OVER HEELS

An Evening with Melissa Newman

Join Melissa Newman as she affectionately delves into her family photo albums for an extraordinary and deeply personal new look inside their private life. Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman became not only movie stars and stage actors, but also artistic collaborators, political activists, and philanthropists whose legacies are expansive and enduringly modern.

Melissa will share her favorite photographs and tell stories about one of America’s most indelibly iconic couples. While their love story wasn’t always a fairytale, it is the stuff of Hollywood legend.

Copies of Head Over Heels: Joanne Woodward & Paul Newman: A Love Affair in Words and Pictures will be available for purchase courtesy of The Village Bookstore.

With 120+ photos of Paul and Joanne together, including many that have never been published, the book celebrates the enduring power of love.

“They were beautiful. They were movie stars. They were also my parents. The photographs don’t lie.”
—Melissa Newman, Head Over Heels
