Can we talk? Of course we can! Especially when it’s with comedienne, actor, author, talk show host, jewelry designer, red carpet fashion laureate and Brownsville native Joan Rivers. It wasn’t easy, but we got the busiest woman in show business to slow down long enough to share some of her favorite books with us. 

For Adults 


The Great Bridge: The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge
by David McCullough

War and Peace
by Leo Tolstoy

A History of the Plantagenets
by Thomas Costain

Murder at the Academy Awards by Joan Rivers (find all of Joan's books here)

This summer, catch up with Joan on twitter, on television in the IFC comedy Z Rock and on her upcoming show on TV Land, How’d You Get So Rich?

Have any thoughts on Joan’s list or any of our celebrity booklists? Let us know!
