Today in Orinda, CA - Louise Brooks celebration
Today, at 2 pm, I'll be speaking about the new "Louise Brooks edition" of The Diary of a Lost Girl at Orinda Books in Orinda, CA. My presentation will include an author talk, slide show, Q&A, and booksigning. More about the event can be found on the Lamorinda Patch at http://lamorinda.patch.com/events/thomas-gladysz-discusses-the-diary-of-a-lost-girl
This special event takes place on the day before what would have been Louise Brooks 104th birthday. Orinda, I might add, was the one-time home of Fay Lanphier, the first ever Miss America from California and star of the 1926 Louise Brooks' film The American Venus. In the post WWII era, Lanphier's husband owned a bookstore in Orinda (not Orinda Books, alas). Hope to see some of you there.
