October 22, 2014 (Valencia, California) - Steve Springer, co-author of Laker Girl, with Jeanie Buss, the NBA Los Angeles Lakers President and Governor, will be one of 10 authors at the annual Barnes & Noble “Local Author Night” in Valencia, California on Friday, October 24th, 2014 at 7:00PM. This writer had the distinct pleasure and honor of writing a review of Springer’s book for the East County Magazine in San Diego several months ago. Steve Springer is a former sportswriter who spent 25 years at the Los Angeles Times. He is the author of 11 books, including four on the Los Angeles Lakers, and the coauthor of the New York Time bestseller American Son with Oscar De La Hoya. Another memorable book by Springer, and a keepsake, is 50th Anniversary: The Los Angeles Times Encyclopedia of the Lakers. This is a must have for all Lakers fans, me included.
This event, coordinated by Joelle Biegel, Community Business Development Manager for Barnes & Noble, comes just before the start of what promises to be an interesting new season for the Los Angeles Lakers, as it comes during the time of the impending retirement of one of its biggest stars of all time, Kobe Bryant.
In addition to Springer at this Local Author Night, Biegel has pulled out all the stops, as she also includes Former White House Chef Louis Eguaras and Dave Berg, former writer & co-producer of the Tonight Show, The Jay Leno Show, The O’Reilly Factor & NBC News. Local authors will meet and greet book lovers and sign their latest literature releases. See Press Release.
