Lights up on Washington Heights with Shelves Bookstore!

Before Hamilton became a global phenomenon, before Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name, a little show called In the Heights shook up Broadway with its hip-hop and salsa soundtrack and big, bilingual heart. In the new book In the Heights: Finding Home, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Quiara Alegría Hudes, and Jeremy McCartertell the story of the show’s humble beginnings, from rehearsals in a bookstore basement to the Broadway smash (and soon-to-be feature film!) that created an unbreakable community and a new kind of family for everyone involved.

Join Miranda, Hudes, and McCarter for a very special In the Heights Virtual Book Launchon Tuesday, June 15th from 8:00 to 9:00pm EST on Zoom. Sure to be an unforgettable conversation on creativity, community, and finding home, this is your chance to hear directly from the creative team behind the timeless story of how one neighborhood—Washington Heights—can speak to the world.

When you purchase your ticket from Shelves, you receive admission to this exclusive event and a hardcover copy of In the Heights: Finding Home. And the best part is, you don’t have to spend more money to get a ticket. Awesome, right? We think so!

Ticket sales will close at 12pm EST on June 15th.
