Backyard Booksigning

So happy to host my dear friend, Claire Fordham's booksigning in our backyard for her latest book 'Life Lessons for Mia Rose. An Irreverant Guide to Living and Loving Well' A wonderful turnout of over 80 people who all got to hear Claire read an excerpt from her book before the highly unusual tropical rain showers forced us inside!. It never rains in LA in July, except when you have an outdoor party, of course! It's something we so need, so it was a welcome surprise that only added to the fun. The live music jam  began inside with Julia Fordham, Jeff  Young, Judith Owen , Harry Shearera.k.a Detek Smalls on bass, Jean McLean and many other great musicians! Can't beat great live music in your house on a Sunday afternoon. People ate dinner outside in the evening with the balmy weather and drizzle creating a fab backdrop! Perfect day!
