Tony Bennett, who turned 90 in August, will release a new book titled “Just Getting Started” on Nov. 15, and will sign copies of it Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. at the Bookends book store in Ridgewood. For information, visit book-ends.com.
There is no admission charge, though those attending must buy one or more books.
KirkusReviews.com described the book, which was co-written with Scott Simon, as “not so much a memoir as a collection of sweet, uplifting tributes to people ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Lady Gaga as well as places, including Astoria in Queens, New York; the small town of Pyrites in upstate New York; and, of course, San Francisco, where Bennett famously left his heart. Each chapter concludes with a lesson the author has learned or a bit of wisdom gained from the subject of the chapter. … The author also salutes family members, like his father, who died when Bennett was 10, and painters such as Picasso and John Singer Sargent. ”
