Mr. Moonlight Book Signing

I would just like to share some photos of the book signing event for my biography of Robert Dean Frisbie titled Mr. Moonlight of the South Seas and published by Dockside Sailing Press. The event took place this past Sunday, October 29, at Lido Village Books in Newport Beach, California.

It turned out to be a fantastic afternoon with a very lively and inquisitive crowd. I enjoyed sharing many conversations about Robert Dean Frisbie with everyone. It was great to see so many family members and friends and, of course, making new acquaintances.

One of the highlights of the afternoon was that Robert Dean Frisbie’s daughter, Elaine, was in attendance. How awesome was that? It was great getting to know her and sharing stories about her father, Pukapuka and the Cook Islands.

A big mahalo and meitake and thanks to Dockside Sailing Press and Lido Village Books for sponsoring the event. It was terrific fun! Oh, and cheers to my daughter, Devin, for taking the photos.

Okay- now for some photos:
