About this event

Random House Studio Sessions is our new event series featuring live conversations with the biggest names on your bookshelf, filmed in our studio and broadcast virtually to wherever you are. These authors will take us behind-the-scenes of their latest releases—and give a peek into their own reading and writing practices, too.


Join us on August 29 at 8 p.m. ET for Random House Studio Sessions: Taylor Jenkins Reid presents Carrie Soto Is Back, as the author of Malibu RisingDaisy Jones & The Six, and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo virtually launches her latest novel about a legendary athlete attempting a comeback when the world considers her past her prime.­


Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. But by the time she retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. She has shattered every record and claimed 20 Grand Slam titles. And if you ask Carrie, she is entitled to every one. She sacrificed nearly everything to become the best, with her father, Javier, as her coach.

But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself sitting in the stands of the 1994 US Open, watching her record be taken from her by a brutal, stunning player named Nicki Chan. At 37 years old, Carrie makes the monumental decision to come out of retirement for one epic final season, in an attempt to reclaim her record.


The event will be broadcast via Zoom, and each ticket includes a hardcover copy of Carrie Soto Is Back in addition to event access. ­

Book orders will be fulfilled by our independent bookstore partner, Brookline Booksmith, and your copy of Carrie Soto Is Back will ship after the event.
