Join us September 11th as we welcome Gretchen Bonaduce here to discuss and sign her book SURVIVING AGENT ORANGE.
Gretchen Bonaduce came onto the scene in the mid-00s, starring in Breaking Bonaduce, a VH1 reality show with her former Partridge Family star husband Danny Bonaduce. Soon after the show ended they divorced and Surviving Agent Orange focuses on the rest of the story: her eighteen year marriage to Danny and all that entailed–addiction, infidelity, and the chaos of celebrity, as well as their divorce and her life as a single mother. Musician, reality star, and mother of two, Gretchen's story takes a fun and funny look at a life in and around the spotlight.
“I love this book, and could not put it down. Gretchen Bonaduce is one of the coolest chicks I know. A terrific mother and an even better friend, her life is been fascinating and crazy at the same time. There are many life lessons in her story. To top it off, it is written in a conversational and relatable way.”
–Jackie Kallen, Author of Hit Me With Your Best Shot and Between
"What a fantastic read. I laughed out loud on so many pages...and then on others, all I wanted to do
was reach out and give [Gretchen] a hug. I love the truth...the ‘no holds barred’ of it all. It is light in the
heaviest of ways and I am honored to know and love the writer. I can’t wait to read it again!"
–Marie Currie, artist, singer, songwriter, and actress
