   My wife has secured an afternoon and evening with author and historian David McCullough. An on-line student with the University of Phoenix, Laurie has printed up two invites for us to spend treasured time with a great influence on my efforts regarding the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series. This is on the heels of my chance meeting with Doris Kearns Goodwin while at the Miami Book Fair International last November.


   The University of Phoenix Southern California Campus is hosting a private reception for local alumni, faculty, community and business leaders, including Q&A with the award-winning scribe in the Founders Room at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Then we’ll enjoy a Distinguished Speaker Series address in the Fred Kavli Theater.


David_McCullough   David McCullough is a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize; the National Book Award; and he’s been honored with the country’s highest civilian award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He’s acclaimed as a master of the art of narrative history and one of our most gifted living writers. His most recent book, New York Times bestseller, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, is described as a lively and entertaining panorama and an epic of ideas… history to be savored1776 is a classic, while John Adams remains one of the most praised and widely-read American biographies ever written.

   In the Preface of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, I wrote:

David McCullough, Ken Burns, and Robert Osborne are devoted to the American Experience. They are true inspirations to us all. I dedicate my efforts to them.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
