SPECIAL BOOK SIGNING AND DISCUSSION EVENT ON JULY 30, 2016
LOS ANGELES (June 15, 2016) – Prominent Hollywood book store, Book Soup, will host a special Author Event with veteran actress and author ROBERTA E. BASSIN, in celebration of her inspirational self-help book, ‘AMELIA EARHART, ME & OUR FRIENDS: Journaling the Journey’, on Saturday, July 30th at 1:00pm.
For over a decade, Bassin has been performing her highly-acclaimed one-woman show ‘Amelia Earhart: In Her Own Words’ about the famous aviation pioneer who disappeared on July 2, 1937. The show takes audiences on a ride through Earhart’s childhood, flight adventures, women's rights and more, weaving together history and entertainment.
Now, Bassin has finally accepted the requests of her audiences, by writing the book ‘AMELIA EARHART, ME & OUR FRIENDS: Journaling the Journey’. Bassin combines her own personal experiences portraying Amelia and her years of research into this fun and interactive journey of self-reflection that will stimulate readers to delve into the maze of life's complexities.
The live show and now book are a natural fit for Bassin considering she is a graduate of UCLA in History and English and holds a California Lifetime Teaching Credential. She is excited about the books potential to reach a wider audience, sharing the life lessons she’s discovered along her own journey with Amelia Earhart. Bassin adds, “It is my hope that my readers will journal along with me, learning more about themselves, finding answers and motivation to conquer and achieve their dreams, be they small or large. As Amelia once said, ‘Nothing in life is to be feared, only to be understood.”
‘AMELIA EARHART, ME & OUR FRIENDS: Journaling the Journey’ is available now on Amazon.com. For further details or to read an excerpt visit: www.amazon.com/dp/1523738561
