Ann Dvorak Author Event at the Whittier Public Library


On March 6th, I’ll be at the Whittier Public Library’s Whittwood Branch to sign copies of Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel and give a lecture all about my extended quest to document Ann’s story.

The lecture is free, though reservations are required. Full details can be found on the library’s website along with my own event page.

Hope to see some of you there!

All About Ann Dvorak’s Encino Walnut Ranch This Thursday


Just a reminder that tomorrow, February 6th, I will be giving a presentation all about Ann Dvorak’s Encino walnut ranch at the Encino-Tarzana branch library at 6pm.

I have waxed ecstatic about this property numerous times in the past, which is where Ann resided during the seemingly happiest and most productive time of her life and career. I am thrilled to ramble on about the place for an hour or so to a, hopefully, captivated audience. I have dug up every historic photo I could find, including images of owners after Ann, so the evening should be a lot of fun. AND, Larry Edmunds Bookshop has graciously agreed to sell copies of Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel at the event.

Hope to see some friendly faces there!
