Celebration Time

New President

Locals gathered at Ports O’ Call restaurant to celebrate President Obama’s inauguration. Harbor Area bloggers documented their stories and photos in Random Lengths News’ Inauguration Notebook.

New Century for Bookstore

Councilwoman Janice Hahn was among many to congratulate Williams’ Book Store for its centennial anniversary. Owners Anne and Jerry Gusha, pictured with Hahn, also received commendations from Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the San Pedro Bay Historical Society.

Author Angi Ma Wong signed Reggie: My Story on Friday night, a children’s book – and stuffed animal – about the infamous Harbor City alligator.

Williams’ 1-0-0 was covered in the Los Angeles Times, Daily Breeze and Random Lengths. See the store’s website for this weekend’s schedule of readings and events.
