A new independent bookstore has just added Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. Gatsby Books in Long Beach, CA is the newest home for my paperback. According to their website and Facebook page:
The owner of the store is Sean Richard Moor, a remarkably friendly person, who has decided to go all out in the promotion of my paperback. On Saturday, February 26th, 2011, Sean is planning an Academy Award’s® Party and booksigning at Gatsby. I’ll be providing history behind this storied ceremony, autographing my book, and we’ll also test your knowledge with an Oscar® quiz, with a prize going to the winner.
Let me take a moment to personally thank my friend Doreen Matsumoto for arranging the relationship between Gatsby and Forgotten Hollywood. She’s been following the progress of my book since I first put pen to paper. I truly appreciate her support.
Incidentally, the location’s name reminds me of the novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, which was first published in April of 1925. The Great Gatsby is ranked #2 in the Modern Library’s lists of the 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century. The work has been made into a motion picture four seperate times, most notably in 1974, and this version starred Robert Redford and Mia Farrow.
Gatsby Books is located at 5535 E. Spring St., right by Bellflower Blvd. If you’re in the neighborhood, you might want to check out this really charming book shop.
