One-Way Ticket to L.A.

Lori Marshall (BSJ86, MSJ88)

“One-Way Ticket to L.A.” is the story of how a nurse from Ohio found love in Hollywood. Written by Barbara Marshall with her daughter Lori Marshall, the memoir chronicles Barbara’s journey from nursing school to Los Angeles where she met a fast-talking comedy writer from the Bronx named Garry Marshall. He would go on to direct movies with Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Julie Andrews and more. Together, Barbara and Garry built one of the most respected marriages in Hollywood. With mutual love and encouragement, their fairy tale lasted 53 years. The book was published by Sarah Street Press in early 2021.
