A classic rock band, 66 Sunset Strip, will be preforming at the bookstore that evening, and light refreshments will be served.
Wendy Marcisofsky, proprietress of Copper Cat Books, shared her excitement about hosting the book launch at her store: “As a child ‘born of the 50's’ growing up in the 60's; I watched it all; from the Beatles on Ed Sullivan to all the ‘bad boys’ who also made the cut on Ed's show. When I learned about the opportunity to host this author; I thought ‘what fun!’ and now, here we are!!”
The event is open to the pubic, and will be held on Friday night, October 14th, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Copper Cat Books, 1570 West Horizon Ridge Pkwy, Suite 170, Henderson, NV (suburban Las Vegas).
