To Celebrate Stories From The Heart, Vol. 2,  New Bestseller By First-Time Authors Mainly 75+ (With A Callow Youth Of 55+ And A Couple Of Kids In Their 60s)


WHAT: Spoken word with music by veteran swing and jazz duo Ira Westley (Harry James Orchestra, film musician/composer) and Harrison Stevens (renowned guitarist with a zillion film spots to his credit) …

Revitalize with these talented musicians and senior authors, mainly first-timers in a book, as they read selections from their early and more recent days. Everything from great grape fiascos to wars…touching, comic, tender, frightening, insightful memories narrated in the distinctive voices of Angelenos originally from India, Hungary, South Africa, Poland and the U.S.

“At Cherbourg, we took the Orient Express to Budapest…” “Winkie was part of a litter produced from an illicit affair between Bunny’s Great Dane and the neighbor’s boxer…”
“Africa grips me by the throat. Shakes me like a dog with a rat, refusing to let me go…”

Emceed by bestselling author and pet humorist Ina, of a certain age herself, creator of the Pawprints Writing Clubs™ that fostered the new bestselling anthology. The authors will sign autographs and join the crowd at the booth for more readings later. Special prices on books.

PLEASE NOTE SPECIAL FOR KATRINA-RITA PETS: At the Pawprints Literacy Plus Foundation, we are dedicated, year-round, to kindness to animals as well as literacy.

We have information on what people can do, and projects they can join to help us help. We are donating $1 from the sale of every Pawprints item sold, plus we are asking people for separate contributions. We are a 501 (c) (3). All donations are tax deductible, and so very needed.
