Recap of featured reading on May 13th

On May 13th at our regular featured reading series at Koffi in Rancho Mirage two accomplished authors debuted their books.

Rose Baldwin’s upcoming novel is entitled Mike’s Magic Burgers. It is about a restaurant where the burgers transport a diner to another realm. For example, the tropical burger transports a new customer to a tropical island where she relaxes on a white sand beach while enjoying a massage. The novel will be out in June and available on Amazon. It promises a delightful read.

Our next featured reader was Patty Farmer whose book Playboy Swings chronicles the contribution Playboy made to jazz artists, many of whom got their start at The Playboy Clubs and The Playboy Jazz Festivals. Many only think of Playboy as a magazine with naked ladies, but Hugh Hefner gave exposure to so many jazz greats. In addition, Hef broke racial barriers by having both black and white performers in the clubs,  and on Playboy After Dark.

Playboy Swings is the first in a trilogy. In September Patty will return to Koffi to debut her next in the series Playboy Laughs which traces the evolution of the jokes and cartoons in Playboy. The last of the series is Playboy Talks which focuses on the articles. Remember the catch phrase, “I read Playboy for the articles.”

Patty is a thorough researcher. In her first book The Persian Room she brought to light the many singers and musicians who performed at the famous Persian Room at The Plaza Hotel.

Join us September 10th at Koffi in Rancho Mirage when Patty will debut Playboy Laughs. And don’t forget to order Rose Baldwin’s Mike’s Magic Burgers on Amazon come June.
