Girl Power! Cha, cha, cha...

Bringing some girl power with me to tomorrow's Print Fair and Festival at the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) in Long Beach. We'll be premiering two new issues "Dorothy Dandridge Lives Here" and an English AND Spanish version of "Dead In Hollywood: Lupe Velez" - her death is the stuff of urban legends thanks to Kenneth Anger's tell-all tome "Hollywood Babylon." This art fair will also be the first time where you'll be able to pick up a copy of "Dead in Hollywood: Natalie Wood" - I spent last summer visiting Catalina Island photographing her last days. There are a lot of new photos in that one! (MOLAA - 628 Alamitos Ave, Long Beach, CA 90802). Hope to see everyone tomorrow! Now it's time for bed... zzzzzz
