2242   In Southern California, I’ve just been offered the opportunity to do a BARNES & NOBLE book-signing at Montclair Plaza. The date of the autograph event is SundayFebruary 6, 2011. This store is located at 5183 Montclair Plaza Lane in Montclair. I’ll be there from 3p – 5p with pen in hand. This will be my first B&N appearance, as well as, my first event in the Inland Empire. The Montclair location will start carrying my book for the Holidays.

   I’m also currently negotiating with a BARNES & NOBLE location in Las Vegas for a book-signing in January. More to report on this later.

   This library chain in the Canandaigua, New York area has added Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. The Pioneer Library System (PLS) is a New York State-chartered cooperative serving the 42 public libraries in Ontario, Wayne, Livingston, and Wyoming counties.

   Just southeast of Rochester in the Western part of the state, Canandaigua was named by the Iroquois tribe of Native Americans in the region. The literal meaning of the city’s name is chosen spot. How fitting for my paperback! 45 copies are now in library branches across the U.S.

“Forgotten Hollywood”- Copies Added at Libraries…

   A few of months ago I blogged about how 9 copies of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History made its way to the various branches of the LOS ANGELES PUBLIC LIBRARY. This figure compliments the 2 additions in the ORANGE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY chain. What I didn’t know – this trend was taking place across the country.

   I’m proud to announce:  2 branches have decided to add more copies of my paperback to their individual or chain of libraries for the pleasure of their readers. This means the revised total of my book on library shelves is now 44 (up from 39). Marvelous news indeed! Here is where they have been added:
