   The oldest full-service independant bookstore in Southern California will be the site of my next book signing event! William’s Book Store  celebrates 101 years in downtown San Pedro.

   They’re right across the street from the Warner Grand Theatre, where the public is invited to a FREE movie screening of Captain’s Courageous this Saturday at noon. This Spencer Tracy – Freddie Bartholomew MGM classic is such a special treat from the LA HARBOR INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. The Fest takes place Thursday to Sunday (see previous blog for more info)…

   Right after a FREE showing of this cinematic masterpiece, you’re invited to an autograph party at Williams Book Store, 443 W. 6th St. I will be signing my new paperback, Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. Several chapters in my book make mention of this fine film, and how it relates to American history. The autograph party will begin at approximately 2:30 and will include refreshments to the invitees and patrons.

<— Anne Gusha and her son Jerry are the co-owners of this wonderful landmark bookstore (since the 1980’s). Anne first visited the store in 1928, and has been associated with them since 1941 (a remarkable relationship, for sure). Now 90 years young, she still can be found negotiating with today’s authors and publishers at the store.

   I hope you can attend this FREE midday screening of Captain’s Courageous at the Warner Grand, and the book signing at William’s Book Store. Saturday should be a fun-filled day for the entire family.
