Our newest series, Adventures with Pawpress Author
Chester L. Richards and Ina Hillebrandt, takes viewers from The
Great Music Stands Adventure to Flying Rockets in Space is Fun. There's
also the story of the man Chester called Uncle Bob, who invented the
engine that earned Ford first place at Le Mans, featured in the film in Ford v Ferrari.
Do tune in, pull up a chair and travel with us to the
adventures of a lifetime, from his new book, From The Potato to
Star Trek and Beyond: Memoirs of a Rocket Scientist. We think you'll agree with Ina and Chester's
growing list of fans -- he's a most lively, riveting storyteller, with a
fine sense of wry. Find the videos mentioned
here and others coming soon in the playlist on our channel.

Author Ina Hillebrandt on Pawprints,
Concerti, and more
In this playlist, Ina Hillebrandt on Pawprints and
Concerti, we see that Ina loves lots of things: Laughing, squirrels,
cats, dogs, horses, raccoons, Brazilian music (check "Concerto for
Percussion and Yawn"), and her daughter Nicole. All of this came
together when a gaggle of squirrels had a picnic on her lap. Honored by
their trust, she refused to wash their little paw prints from her
slacks. And her first book, Pawprints, was born. Thanks so much,
from Ina, to the folks at WXEL for covering this booksigning at Liberty
Books in Palm Beach, FL, and for sharing it periodically on your show.
Also in this playlist, Irwin Zucker, legendary
book industry icon and host extraordinaire presents Ina with the IRWIN
(Industry Recognition of Writers in the News) Award.
