On Wednesday night, bestselling and famed author Stephen Maitland-Lewis celebrated the release of his latest book, “Botticelli’s Bastard,” which is an excellent new mystery novel. The event was hosted by Glyd Evans Press and the venerable Actors Fund. It was a lovely reception and book signing, with Mr. Maitland-Lewis making sure The Actors Fund was the recipient of the evening’s proceeds.
Swanky Nonna of Italy Restaurant on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood was the location for the event. In addition to “The Young and the Restless” vet Kate Linder, who has appeared on the soap for over 30-years and still going strong, and stage star Keith McNutt, who is Director of West Coast Region of The Actors Fund, also the event had others in attendance; Florence Henderson, Bruce Boxleitner, Ruta Lee, Halle Jordan, Martin Kove, Norm Crosby, Neile Adams, Lorielle New, Ralph Remy, Joni Berry, Peter Mark Richman, David Niven, Jr., J. Patrice Marandel, from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Scott Schaefer, from J. Paul Getty Museum, among many others.
