Jim Young reports he went to the “soft” opening of Mysterious Galaxy in Redondo Beach today, September 13. He says, “It’s really a wonderful store. It’ll eventually also have a coffee shop inside it, though they’re still building that part of the experience.”
The address is 2810 Artesia Blvd., Redondo Beach, CA 90278.
Denise Hamilton will sign there tonight (September 13) from 7:30-8:30 p.m.
Denise Hamilton is no stranger to adventure! With only $200 in her back pack, the Los Angeles native hitchhiked into Albania, relying on the hospitality of strangers. Along with her Balkan adventure, Hamilton, a Fulbright Scholar, also lived and taught in former Yugoslavia during the Bosnian War. As a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times, Hamilton covered events ranging from the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe to the fall of the Soviet Union. Her award winning work has also appeared in Wired, Cosmopolitan, Der Spiegel and New Times. While Hamilton is mainly focused on her fiction career these days, readers can still get a whiff of her journalistic style. Hamilton writes Uncommon Scents, a monthly perfume column for the Los Angeles Times. Damage Control, her latest, is a stand-alone thriller with themes of politics and celebrity, as well as passion and murder.
