A Signing Event

“A Signing Event”

Mark your calendars!  On Saturday, June 29th from 2:00 TO 4:00 we will be celebrating Legendary Locals at the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum in Ilwaco.  There will be poetry and music and speechifying (just a little.)  But mostly it will be a grand opportunity to meet and greet those movers-and-shakers who are featured in my new book, Legendary Locals of the Long Beach Peninsula.

The announcement calls it “A Signing Event.”  And, although it isn’t spelled out specifically, the idea is for everyone to bring their copies of the book (and a pen!) and have the Legendary Locals sign the page where their photograph appears – à la that well-remembered high school yearbook activity at the end of each school year.  Books will also be for sale at the museum gift shop.

There will be a sit-down-and-pay-attention program emceed by Bill Garvin and featuring fisher-poet Geno Leech and singer-songwriter Mary Garvey and me (a little bit).  There will be refreshments.  And there will be time for reminiscing and telling stories about the people who have made (and continue to make) this community what it is.

It should be a time of fun and laughter with a few serious moments thrown in for good measure.  I SO hope that as many Legendary Locals as can possibly make it are there, along with their friends and loved ones and admirers.  I’m looking forward to hearing stories (and even tall tales!) told by and about these folks who have been so influential in shaping our lives.

It’s an event open to the public.  See you there!

    Finally, Sydney! Something I should be able to attend. I’m marking it on my calender and look forward to seeing you then if not sooner!
