PHOTO FRIDAY: Author Robert Dugoni’s Book Signing At The Tin Room
On Thursday (may 27th), New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni held a book signing party at the Tin Room in Olde Burien, to a packed, receptive crowd of at least 50 fans.
Tin Room owner Dan House introduced Dugoni, who shared numerous anecdotes about writing the book, why he set parts of it in Burien, and why his protagonist’s favorite hangout is The Tin Room.
Books were sold by Burien’s own Page2Books at 25% off the list price, and Dugoni signed every single one he could.
Several local dignitaries were there, including Mayor Joan McGilton, as well as newly-published local humor Writer Shawn Underwood (who we featured recently here), who hung out in the back, studying how Dugoni worked the room.
Scott Schaefer was there, and he captured the following Sound Slideshow â€“ be sure to turn your speakers up to hear the campy audio, lifted from the 1947 educational public domain film “Making Books“:
