THE WOODLANDS, TX — The 17th Annual John Cooper School Signatures Author Series is Dec. 3 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott and Convention Center. Keynote speaker Taylor Jenkins Reid will discuss her writing style, inspiration, and new book Malibu Rising.

“Reid’s newest novel, Malibu Rising, an instant New York Times bestseller follows the four famous Riva siblings who throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. The events of the night in 1983 reveal the many secrets that shaped this family’s generations, and the Rivas lives change forever. With her beloved, signature style, Reid writes a powerful story of historical fiction that explores fame, family, identity, and the impact of secrets unraveled. Malibu Rising is a #ReadWithJenna book club pick and is set to be adapted as a Hulu television series.”
- Jessica Holloway, The John Cooper School

Reid is also the author of Daisy Jones & The Six and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, both New York Times bestsellers. Prior to her presentation, guests will enjoy a delicious lunch surrounded by immersive decor. With Malibu Rising front and center, the theme will be Malibu meets the 80s.
