[Past Event] Birth of a Book | Zoom + Recorded

Course Description:

Join us in celebrating the publication of Renée Farrington’s memoir, "In the Shadow of the Sign–My Life in Pictures." Renée will guide us through a decade-long journey, taking an idea born in the OLLI Writers' Circle and maneuvering through and around numerous obstacles on her way to becoming a published author. "In the Shadow of the Sign" is a whimsical picture storybook that chronicles growing up on the “wrong” side of the Hollywood Sign during the early days of Los Angeles. The memoir illuminates a childhood where Renée played near where her father drew Donald Duck for Walt Disney, and it stars a cast of characters including her grade school classmates, Natalie Wood and Debbie Reynolds.
