The “Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel” Official Book Launch Party Is – Official
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 275
I did a “save the date” post a while back, but now everything is lined up and the Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel Official Book Launch Party is posted on the Los Angeles Public Library’s event calendar!
I have been digging through the collection and located a handful of “authentic” Ann Dvorak recipes that shouldn’t clash too much when laid out on a table together. I am still debating if I want to serve Sanka, which Ann would secretly spring on dinner guests. I haven’t seen Sanka in stores for a long time, and while it is available for purchase online, I’m not sure if it’s old, expired Sanka. I am going to be projecting one of Ann’s films for ambiance, and will be displaying some of my memorabilia and Ann’s personal items. As of now, Mary Carlisle who briefly knew Ann at MGM around 1929/30 is scheduled to be a special guest. And of course, we’ll have lots of copies of the book for sale!
I kind of figure the room will be filled with people I work with or am related to, so if you’re in the Los Angeles area on November 12th, stop by and get your signed copy of Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel!
