   The evening sponsored by the University of Phoenix was everything my wife Laurie and I hoped it would be. It began with a private reception that included finger food and beverages; and a opportunity to network with folks who were thrilled about the prospect of a personal introduction to author and historian David McCullough. After an intimate presentation, I even got the chance to ask a question to our esteemed host.

   The photographs below illustrate how congenial Mr. McCullough is. He was engaging, and insisted on spending 15 minutes autographing copies of his award winning novels brought by the enthralled guests. An unabashed avid reader, he was deeply honored to receive copies of my Forgotten Hollywood Book Series. His lovely wife secured the books on their behalf.

At its conclusion, and by all accounts, he received the longest ovation in the history of the Distinguished Speaker’s Series, a true measure of his ability to educate and entertain a large audience.

   All told, it was a special way to start the year…
