As many of you know, I get extremely nervous kicking off book tours. But the incomparable Richard Skipper–interviewer extraordinaire–and good friend, made it a fun night. Richard’s questions lead the audience through the high points of Hugh Hefner and Playboy’s advancement of entertainment, that I covered in Playboy Swings, and left them wanting to know more.
Barnes and Noble, and especially Maja, couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful. Thank you to everyone who came and bought books. We sold out and is a big accomplishment with all the electronic versions available.
Next up–I’ll be signing books at Charles of Laguna in beautiful seaside Laguna Beach, CA on Sunday September 27 from 2-4. Please stop by and say hi.  I’d you’d like to know where my book tour will be next, check out the Appearances page:  http://patty-farmer.com/appearances

 


Tommy Tune Live at Café Carlyle

Tommy Tune had a brilliant run at Café Carlyle with More Taps, Tunes and Tall Tales. I had the privilege of seeing his special performance and boy did he not disappoint! Tommy tapped his way into the hearts of the audience with a serious of exuberant, intricate, and exquisitely smooth steps despite the supper club’s notoriously low ceilings!

Tommy Tune

Tommy Tune is a master performer. The Tony Award winner sings, acts, dances, directs, choreographs, and produces. On top of it all, he’s a great friend. He was there to lend me his hand and help calm my nerves at my press event for The Persian Room Presents!

The Plaza Hotel Press Event for The Persian Room Presents

On March 6, 2012, I hosted an event at the Plaza Hotel to showcase The Persian Room Presents to press and the celebrities that filled the books pages. Over the course of 2 years, I visited with each one of the Persian Room stars in the book to hear their own personal stories about performing in the venue that turned talented performers into stars.  After so much time working on collecting the stories, writing the book, and selecting the best photographs, it was such a joy to celebrate the book with the stars that became my friends.
