Son of Actor Jack Lemmon Shares Memoir

Chris Lemmon - son of late actor Jack Lemmon - will share his stories about growing up with a famous father during the July Fontbonne University/KMOX Book Club on Thurs., July 20, at 7 p.m. at the University Club in Richmond Heights. Lemmon will discuss his book, "A Twist of Lemmon:  A Tribute to My Father," and take questions from the audience.

The event is free but reservations are required. Call 314-444-1827, leave your name and phone number and reference the July book club to reserve a spot today.

According to the publisher, "A Twist of Lemmon" is Chris Lemmon's first book, and only fitting that it should be about the person who came first in his life. Although his parents divorced when he was very young and Jack Lemmon led a busy life, Chris and his father remained close, sharing yearly fishing trips to Alaska and their two passions, music and golf.

The young Lemmon is a writer and actor and lives in Connecticut with his wife and three children.
