The following is from YouthNet and Words Bookstore:

Supermodel Beverly Johnson, who made history in 1974 as the first black supermodel to grace the cover of American Vogue, will be at Words Bookstore in Maplewood on Friday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Johnson will discuss and sign copies of her new memoir, The Face That Changed It All, about how she rose to success and fame while overcoming social obstacles.

Reservations required: $20 adults; $15 students. Seating is limited. Books are discounted for those attending the event. Reservations and payments can be made through Paypal.

All proceeds will benefit YouthNet enrichment programming and after school scholarships at South Orange Middle School and Maplewood Middle School, as well as activities at Columbia High School.

The Face That Changed It All is a revelatory and redemptive memoir from Johnson,  and who after over five hundred magazine covers, remains one of the most successful glamour girls ever. A model, actress, and businesswoman, Johnson starred in the OWN reality show “Beverly’s Full House” in 2012 and was named one of the twentieth century’s most influential people in fashion by The New York Times.
