On January 17th, a host of literary and film insiders convened within the serene hills of Southern California’s exclusive Pacific Palisades to celebrate the official launch of author Gloria Norris’ memoir Kookooland.
Amid a swirl of rave reviews from major media outlets, excitement was high with Norris visibly moved by the outpouring of support from friends and colleagues. In keeping with Norris’ Greek heritage, which is explored in depth in Kookooland, a catered feast of Mediterranean appetizers and desserts was served.
Norris then read an excerpt from her memoir, a chapter entitled “Blood Feast,” to a rapt audience. You can watch Norris’ delivery below, as well as a gallery of photos from the successful event!
