Yesterday was the launch party for The Memory Painter at The Last Bookstore in LA. It was a fantastic night. Here are a few photos capturing the evening, photography by Mike Fanning.

The bookstore is a gorgeous space. There is a wraparound balcony along the second floor where you can look down.

For the party we had finger foods and cocktails. (Thank you Bite Catering Couture & BarTime)

The specialty cocktail for the evening was a Purple Pushkin. What’s in a Purple Pushkin, you ask? An equal mix of vodka, pineapple juice & Chambord served over ice. Please try it.

I love this picture. The man leaning against the pillar on the right side is Will Damron, the narrator of the audiobook. I’m about to surprise everyone and announce that he is here and going to come up and do the second reading.

This was a real treat and a highlight of the evening. If you want to learn more about Will’s work you can visit his website and here’s a link to the audiobook.
