We will be presenting this event virtually, using Zoom. RSVP here.

Join Tara Ariano and Sarah D. Bunting, co-authors of A Very Special 90210 Book, as they chat about the show that inspired their new book, its imminent 30th anniversary (...yes, that math checks out), why it is still a Gen X touchstone...and then lead the audience in a round of 90210 trivia for actual (very silly) prizes! We'll wrap up with an audience Q&A. No need to exchange an egg -- just RSVP!

On October 4, 1990, the first episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 premiered and was instantly a pop sensation that forever defined a generation. Now, 30 years later, it’s time to rediscover what you’ve forgotten—and perhaps learn what you never knew—about TV’s hippest ZIP. 

From the creators of the hit podcast Again With This, A VERY SPECIAL 90210 BOOK: 93 ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL EPISODES FROM TV’S MOST NOTORIOUS ZIP CODE is a hilarious and substantive companion guide that features critical recaps of the show’s most important episodes. With both humor and nostalgia, authors Tara Ariano and Sarah D. Bunting dig into key elements of the show the way only die-hard fans could, exploring Hartley House lore, critiquing Scott Scanlon’s memorial, and tracking the ebbs and flows of Dylan’s trust fund, plus much, much more.   

A VERY SPECIAL 90210 BOOK is the perfect keepsake for every superfan who wants to revisit the hallowed halls of West Beverly High and relive the good ol’ days with The Gang.
