“Forgotten Hollywood”- The Gift of Literacy…

Manny P. here… LatinoBookFestival

   I was very pleased to have been part of the 2010 Latino Book and Family Festival this past weekend. I met with my colleagues, participated in spirited panels, and enjoyed chatting with friendly folks who decided to purchase Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History.

   The added bonus to this fine weekend was a Book Drive on behalf of Wilson High School in Los Angeles (named for President Woodrow Wilson). According to Reyna Grande, the panel coordinator of the Festival, 175 authors donated their work on behalf of this charitable effort. The real winners of this drive are the children who study at Wilson High Library. I also provided one as part of this fine endeavor.



   By the way, this Monday I’ll be visiting the newly dedicated Esteban Torres High School in L.A. (named in honor of the former eight-term U.S. Congressman). As part of the festivities,    I’ll also donate a book to their library. Sharing literary ideas to our optimistic children is a  premise I completely embrace.

   And finally, I’m close to attaining my goal of collecting $1 from the sale of every copy of my book in order to contribute $2500 to my official charity – Mooseheart Child City And School – located on the outskirts of Chicago. I hope to travel soon to the Midwest to personally deliver the money to Mooseheart, and of course, a copy of my paperback to their library.

Until next time>                               “never forget”  logoFamilyFratLogo
