Get Cozy with John Stamos in Ocean County Library Virtual Author Talk

October 11, 2023

TOMS RIVER – Four decades after springing into national consciousness, John Stamos remains one of America’s most versatile, likeable and enduring personalities. Meet the man behind the icon online at 8 PM Wednesday, November 1 during his Ocean County Library Virtual Author Talk.

The actor-producer-musician’s poignant memoir, If You Would Have Told Me, available at the Ocean County Library, is the springboard for a candid discussion of life in front and away from the cameras, the cost of success, love won and lost, and the courage needed to keep one’s heart open.

Starting as a TV heartthrob on General Hospital, Stamos developed legions of fans with his comedic and dramatic skills on Full House and ER and later moved into film and the legitimate stage.

Stamos began a long musical association with the Beach Boys in 1985 and received an Emmy nomination for producing the moving 2000 miniseries The Beach Boys: An American Family. Stamos was nominated again in 2018 for producing the child-friendly Fuller House. He advocates for child abuse prevention and treatment through Childhelp.
