Author Geoff Schumacher signs a book for Patti Haack
I want to thank everyone that helped make our event, "Power, Paranoia and Palace Intrique: Howard Hughes in Las Vegas" at the State Museum last Tuesday such a success. The book signing, coordinated by Stephens Press, was a rousing success. The Staff and Volunteers of the Nevada State Museum provided an excellent venue, refreshments and support. The Friends of Classic Las Vegas helped to co-sponsor the event.
Though Robert Maheu was ill and unable to attend we send him our best wishes for a speedy recovery. The other panelists, Mr. Paul Winn, Mrs. Peg Crockett, Mr. Gordon Margulis and the author, Geofff Schumacher shared their memories and their stories of Mr. Hughes. It was a wonderful evening and the panelists held the audience entranced as they each described the Howard Hughes they had encountered over the years.
A special thanks to all who attended and helped make this a very memorable evening for all involved.
