Our technological world has made things difficult for bookstores all around, so we have to give it to Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena for still standing and doing so not only to sell books but to provide experiences related to writing, reading, and the arts in general.
An e-mail today announced that Chelsea Clinton will have a book signing at the store on Colorado Blvd. on October 7, 2015, at 6:30 p.m. The book is titled “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!,” meant for youngsters 10-years-old and above. The publication reportedly combines pictures and stories about children and teens whose actions have changed and inspired their families and their communities.
When you buy a copy of this hardcover book at Vroman’s, you’ll get one ticket that will admit up to four family members into the signing event. Ms. Clinton will sign copies of this book only (so don’t bring any other memorabilia). If this sounds like fun call (626) 449-5320 to order your book, or do it online or in person.
When you make it to the store also take a look at the art that is currently hanging by the stairwell. It is the work of photographer Byron Motley who has taken some beautiful shots of Cuba in the 17 times he has visited the island in the past 10 years. He recently had a signing at Vroman’s of his book “Embracing Cuba,” which is a nice collection of his photos organized by subjects like architecture, cars, dogs, music, sports, etc. Yours truly was there for that signing, which was quite the fancy one with wine, cheese and so on.
