A Very Special Occasion!

BookExpoAmerica was held at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. The entire building was filled by this very prestigious event. Exhibitors come from all over the world for this fabulous four-day feast of books.

Darlene was at BookExpoAmerica on the first weekend in June, 2007.

She was invited by the publisher, H.C.I. to sign her new book, "Rover, Get Off Her Leg!", which has just been released.  She did one book signing on June 1st and two on June 2nd.

Two of these signings were in the H.C.I. booth (left); the third was on the main floor of the Javits Center.

Patie Ventre and Dancer (right) did freestyle demonstrations for Darlene's Saturday signings,
which added great beauty and panache to an
already wonderful day!


Darlene was proud to be a part of this important global occasion and honored to be invited by H.C.I.

Her book was received with delighted enthusiasm and acclaim; a launch party will be held later this month.
