Today begins the California part of the West of Sunset tour. To start things off, here are two photos from an event last year. They were taken at Musso and Frank Grill, which is one of the locales that makes an appearance in West of Sunset. Next to the restaurant was Stanley Rose’s bookstore (in operation from 1935 to 1939), where folks like Fitzgerald, Nathanael West, John O’Hara, and William Faulkner went to talk and drink in the back room!
In attendance: Stewart O’Nan, Holly Watson, Sales rep Tom Benton, Sales Rep Amy Comito; Booksellers Ed Conklin, Chaucer’s (Santa Barbara); Allison Hill, Vroman’s and Book Soup; Adrian Newell, Warwick’s (San Diego); Julie Slavinsky, Warwick’s (San Diego); Steve Salardino, Skylight (LA).
Stewart will be in the great state of California this coming week, starting tonight at Rakestraw Books. Come on by!
