Thought I'd post a few Hawthorne Historical Society book signing pics taken my good friend Bryan Frank and his protege, my daughter, Sophia.
The poster was created by my outstanding marketing man Mike Bender
The folks at the Hawthorne Historical Society said more than 125 people came out for a most excellent afternoon of nostalgia.
Most of the folks on hand grew up in or around Hawthorne.
Here I am with Frances 97 year-old Frances Stiglich. I was happy to support her campaign for a spot on the city council. She is one of the most inspirational people I've had the pleasure to meet. She came to Hawthorne in 1943 to work as a riveter for Northrop Aircraft. The old Northrop factory is now occupied Space X. Frances is trying to convince Elon Musk to send her into space for her 100th birthday.
I went to Saint Joseph's Catholic School with these beautiful people.
As for these characters, we did stand up comedy together in the 80s. We used to be pretty funny. Sometimes.
It was a work day for my beautiful wife and daughters.
