      EVENT DETAILS
      Somewhere Only We Know with Maurene Goo

      Note: Your ticket includes - and is the same price as - the book. The Last Bookstore is pleased to present Maurene Goo and her new book Somewhere Only We Know. Sparks fly between a K pop starlet and a tabloid reporter in this heartwarming rom-com from Maurene Goo, inspired by Roman Holiday. Join us for this in-conversation event between Maurene and Kate Spencer, host of the Forever 35 podcast and author of the adult memoir, The Dead Moms Club.   A Cosmopolitan Best Young Adult Book of 2019 10:00 p.m.: Lucky is the biggest K-pop star on the scene, and she’s just performed her hit song “Heartbeat” in Hong Kong to thousands of adoring fans. She’s about to debut on The Tonight Show in America, hopefully a breakout performance for her career. But right now? She’s in her fancy hotel, trying to fall asleep but dying for a hamburger. 11:00 p.m.: Jack is sneaking into a fancy hotel, on assignment for his tabloid job that he keeps secret from his parents. On his way out of the hotel, he runs into a girl wearing slippers, a girl who is single-mindedly determined to find a hamburger. She looks kind of familiar. She’s very cute. He’s maybe curious. 12:00 a.m.: Nothing will ever be the same.   With her trademark humor and voice, Maurene Goo delivers a sparkling story of taking a chance on love—and finding yourself along the way.   Maurene Goo studied communication at UC San Diego and then later received a Masters in publishing, writing, and literature at Emerson College. She is the author of Since You Asked, I Believe in a Thing Called Love, and The Way You Make Me Feel. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two cats.   All events are subject to cancellation, so please check back.
