If you love the excitement of West Hollywood, with it's Comedy Store, Whisky A Go Go and Cinerama Dome as, well as coffee houses on every corner filled with interesting people you will love Book Soup.
Set in the midst of all the action, Book Soup offered the perfect venue for my Hollywood debut. I was thrilled with the diversified group of beautiful people curious to hear never before told stories from a romantic era in Hollywood that no longer exists. I think a stunning piece of nostalgic history would be well received today and maybe it's time I take my act on the road and show what it was like when there was still a bit of romantic imagination left in the world.
Book Soup and Pages was a heartfelt experience but my two day event at the Concourse d'Elegance took the cake! My siblings and I showed our fathers 1977 Clenet "Series One," at the Desert Classic where Alain Clenet the designer and owner of Clenet Coachworks of Santa Barbara, was present to sign the car while a camera crew taped him being interviewed. It touched our hearts to hear Alain Clenet tell stories about out father and # 13 out of 250 original first edition Clenet's, from over 30 years ago. I was also interviewed and will post the video next month when it is officially ready to be aired. But for now here are a few pictures of Bill the Clenet at it's debut after being in storage for 5 years. Bill won second place in the neoclassic category.

Tomorrow I will post some of the action on video we took during the signing of the car by Alain Clenet as well as some more fun pictures of the event. I ended my 8 day media tour with a book club luncheon in my honor yesterday in Paradise Valley Arizona, at a lovely home where 18 ladies came to hear more inside stores about the book they all seemed to love love love! Stay tuned this week for more posts and pictures I'm sure will be most interesting as well as fun to see.
