It's Not About Pretty Book Signing At Hennessey & Ingalls With Pro Skater Jordyn Barratt.

Friday, March 24, 2017

We are super proud to say that we will be doing a book signing and talk at Hennessey & Ingalls Bookstore this Saturday (March 25) at 5 PM with special guest, pro skateboarder and X-Games medalist, Jordyn Barratt.

Hennessey & Ingalls isn't a typical bookstore, it is the largest art, architecture and design bookstore in the western United States, and probably the largest retail operation in the country dealing just with books on the visual arts. They have been around since 1963 and have recently moved into the Down Town LA Arts District where there is a thriving art community, great restaurants and more.

More on Hennessey & Ingalls:  Hennessey + Ingalls has become a landmark in the visual arts community. They are pleased to count many of the area's and the country's leading architectural firms as clients, along with museums, collectors, art galleries, students, interior designers, graphic design firms, and schools. They are the primary book supplier to three large academic art libraries in Southern California, as well as to smaller schools and corporate libraries around the country. They maintain especially strong and in-depth selections of books in art and art history, all phases of architecture, photography, interior design, graphic design, and landscaping. The broadness of the collections and the knowledge of the staff at Hennessey + Ingalls is an important reason why top art directors in film, television, and advertising shop with them.

Jordyn, Ian and I look forward to seeing you there for an amazing night and if anyone is up for dinner and drinks afterward please join us!! 

Please RSVP HERE as seating is limited and books may sell out.

Nice interview with OG skater from the early 70's, Laura Thornhill Caswell, on today. Molly Schiot who just released her book on women's sports titled "Game Changers" conducted the interview and wrote the piece on Laura. We love that it captures Laura's free spirit and shares her stories of what it was like for her skateboarding back in the early years.

When we received a call from The Beach Reporter to see if some skater girls would like to skate the new Manhattan Beach Skatepark, we were all for it. We rounded up a small group of girls and headed over to skate the new park in private before it became open to the public this past Saturday. A private all girls session before a park opens is a rarity. We'd like to thank The Beach Reporter and the City of Manhattan Beach for making this happen.

Skaters are;  Kala Fernandez,  Stella Reynolds, Vianez Morales, Quinne Daniels, Kyra Williams, Leah Ho, and Minna Stess.

Hop over HERE to read the article and see the video by Daniella Segura from The Beach Reporter and see more photos from the day.
