Raquel Welch coming to Warwick’s on May 10

At 6:30 p.m. May 10, Warwick’s will host Hollywood icon and La Jolla High School graduate Raquel Welch, who will sign “Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage.” The event is free and open to the public, although in order to be signed, her book must be purchased from Warwick’s.

She didn’t aspire to fame as a sex symbol, yet for many years Raquel Welch was best known for her beauty and sex appeal. A private person, she allowed people to draw their own conclusions from her public image. Now, she’s speaking her mind in her new book. And, with the luxury of hindsight and the benefit of experience, she has plenty to share about the art of being a woman.

In her book, she talks, woman to woman, about her views on all that comes with being a member of the female sex — love, sex, style, health, body image, career, family, forgiveness, aging and coming of age. Looking back on her life, she lets women in on her childhood, dominated by a volatile father; her first love, marriage and divorce; her early struggles as a single working mother in Hollywood; her battles for roles and respect as an actress; and her daring decision never to lie about her age.

With warmth, humor, conviction, and honesty, Raquel reveals her approach to preventative aging, her life-changing commitment to yoga, her recipe for eating right, her skin care regimen, her flair for fashion, and much more.
