Friends of the Huntington Beach Library!

Huntington Beach Library, Huntington Beach, CA

Many thanks to the Friends of the Huntington Beach Library for hosting me for a reading, discussion and signing!  It was a wonderful event and opportunity to meet many wonderful people and friends of books.

The library was designed by architect Richard Neutra and built by his son Dion after his death and opened in 1972.  It has waterfalls inside that empty into a pool on the ground floor so wherever you are, you hear the sound of water.  Lovely!

And speaking of lovely, I want to thank everyone again for voting for Chanel in the preliminary round of the Goodreads Choice Awards!  Don’t forget to vote in Round 2!  Chanel is in the Debut Author and Memoir Categories!
