Book Signing with James Oliver Goldsborough

Join us for a book signing with James Oliver Goldsborough on Sunday, July 27th from 2-4pm. The author will be signing copies of his new book The Paris Herald.

"A story that is as evocative of Americans in Paris as Hemingway's A Moveable Feast

The Paris Herald tells the story of the world’s most famous newspaper, focusing on the key years when the fates of the newspaper and the regime of Charles de Gaulle became curiously intertwined. The story centers on intrigue and rivalry among the New York Herald Tribune, New York Times and Washington Post. When the Herald Tribune ceased operations in New York in 1966, the Times, which had started its own European Edition in 1960, expected the Paris Herald to close, too, giving the Times victory in Paris as well as New York. But Herald Tribune owner Jock Whitney wouldn’t sell to the Times, preferring to join with Katharine Graham and the upstart Washington Post. Within months, the Timescame, hat-in-hand, seeking a minority interest in the new Herald/Post partnership. The Times neither forgave nor forgot its humiliation.

The Paris Herald the most entertaining story of Americans in Paris since Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, is riveting historical drama, as relevant today as yesterday."

Book Signing with Susan Mizruchi

Join us for a book signing with Susan Mizruchi on Sunday, July 13th from 4-6pm. The author will be signing copies of her new book, Brando's Smile.

"When people think about Marlon Brando they think of the movie star; the hunk; the scandals. Susan L. Mizruchi finds the Brando others have missed: the man who collected four thousand books; the man who rewrote scripts, trimming his lines to make them sharper; the man who consciously used his body and employed the objects around him to create believable characters; the man who used his fame to foster Indian and civil rights. From Brando’s letters, audiotapes, and annotated screenplays and books—many never before available—Mizruchi gives us a complex person whose intelligence belies the high-school dropout. She shows how Brando’s embrace of foreign cultures and outsiders led to brilliant performances in unusual roles—a gay man, an Asian, and a German soldier—to foster empathy on a global scale and to test himself. In portraying a fuller Brando, Mizruchi portrays an even more fascinating man."

Book Signing with Evelyn De Wolfe

Join us for a book signing with Evelyn De Wolfe on Saturday, May 24th from 2-4pm. The author will be signing copies of her new book, The Life and Times of Phlange Welder

"My newest book reveals a little-known humorous slice of Los Angeles Times history and salutes a by-gone era of print journalism," says author Evelyn De Wolfe. "It underscores the value of humor and camaraderie in the workplace. The bottom line is that few of us can function successfully without it."

In her book, the former Los Angeles Times staff writer and columnist documents the rise and fall of a dapper fictitious socialite created by a group of Times staffers during the 1960s, who surreptitiously wedged his way into the guest lists of Los Angeles' rich and famous.

Phlange Welder's comings and goings were reported in the pages of the Los Angeles Times for five years until the fateful day when he was betrayed and suffered the profound humiliation of a full television expose.

This is a MUST for those prone to chuckling.
