Remember a time when life in Hollywood seemed to be filled a little more joie de vivre? When restaurants and bars and architecture that have become legend still stood in Hollywood unravaged by time or developers ? If you do, then you won’t want to miss the return of Gregory Paul Williams for “Long Gone Hollywood-part 2″.
Before your time? Most of these images are before my time. Maybe you’re a film buff or a preservationist or a nostalgia lover who loves to learn about what went happened on these streets before you were here. The history of it all.In that case,you won’t want to miss the return of Gregory Paul Williams for “Long Gone Hollywood-part 2″.
Sadly, you have already missed “Long Gone Hollywood-part 1″. Greg’s return has been in the making for some time and his presentations are a wonderful, concise time capsule into Hollywood of the past. Greg will also be signing copies of “the Story of Hollywood” in the newly reprinted paperback edition. Already have a copy? I’m not surprised, so here’s our deal to you. You can reserve a chair for the evening by buying another book, any book, here at the store if you already have “the Story of Hollywood” and we’ll reserve you a seat for the show.Perhaps you know who would want this excellent book as a holiday gift and if you pick one up, we’ll reserve you a seat for the show.
We are devoted here at Larry Edmunds Bookshop to presenting Long Gone Hollywood, not being a part of it. If you enjoy our shows, let us know with your purchase. If not a purchase, maybe you can help us spread the word about what we do and why we still like the printed word on the page, not just on a lit up screen. We don’t want bookstores to be a memory of the past, but a living, breathing place for history, creativity and those that know the joy of what a great book can truly offer as well as great presentations like “Long Gone Hollywood”.
Come on out next Thursday for our “Ce-L.A.-bration”!
If you love Hollywood, we are Hollywood since 1938, and we thank you for your support.
