Organizers of The Latino Book & Family Festival will spend the next three weeks aggressively promoting this National event. One of the Fest coordinators, Reyna Grande, did a radio interview on Univision that will air on September 26th. Edward James Olmos will also be doing a commercial airing on Telemundo.
In fact, a press conferance is scheduled this Thursday at 11a at Pan American Bank in L.A. with Olmos and elected officials. I’ve additionally been invited to discuss my involvement with The Latino Book & Family Festival.
The publicity team is working on getting L.A. County Supervisor Gloria Molina to do a PSA on behalf of the Festival. Mayor Antonio Villarigosa has also been contacted about conducting a potential press conference to promote this wonderful event.
I’m proud Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History will be part of this noteworthy Festival weekend designed to promote significant books written by important Latino authors across the country.
This is my personal invitation to invite Southern California readers of my blog to this fine weekend event on October 9th and 10th.
Until next time> “never forget”
