We had a crowd of about 50.
Everyone was welcomed by Diana Ljungaeus, Exec. Director of the Los Angeles Press Club and then I was introduced by Boris Dralyuk, Noir Editor at the Los Angeles Review of Books. Also, at the event from LARB...Evan Kindley, Managing Editor, Julie Cline, Senior Non-Fiction Editor and others.
In the crowd was Judith Freeman, author of The Long Embrace: Raymond Chandler and the Woman He Loved. Also, Stephanie Swengel, Vice President of Production, Fox Animation Studios, and many others.
I want to thank the friends and family that came out for the evening. And, too, all the work of Fern Diaz and her crew at O/R Books.
O/R Books Rules!! Joe.
