It’s been a tremendously busy week here at The Man Behind the Nose Central. Here’s a quick recap of all the amazing adventures we’ve had this week.
On Tuesday, co-author Thomas Scott McKenzie and Susan Harmon gave dozens of radio interviews with stations all around the country. Then we celebrated the book’s release along with the 50th anniversary of Bozo the Clown in Chicago with a ding-dong-dandy event at Borders in the Miracle Mile. Lots of old pals came out to get a copy of the book, meet Bozo himself, and play the Grand Prize Game!
Media has continued throughout the week which has been a real joy. It’s been so nice to speak with people throughout the nation who remember Bozo with such fondness. We’ve heard really touching stories from people about the time they went to a taping of the Bozo Show.
This weekend, the fun continues with an event at Book Soup in Los Angeles. We’ll gather at 4pm to take photos and get books signed by Bozo, followed by an all out pie assault as we indulge in an age old tradition of throwing pies in people’s faces. Don’t worry, you’ll be spared. But some very generous pals are gonna need a bunch of towels! Be sure to come out and say hello!
There were a couple of interesting pieces of media coverage about The Man Behind the Nose today.
First, Michael Kane wrote in the the New York Post that the book is “Part chronicle of derring-do, the posthumous tell-all (Harmon died in 2008 of heart failure) is also a chronicle of the entertainer’s vision in building an entertainment empire around face paint and funny shoes.”
And also today, Phil Potempa wrote for NWI.com that, “Without his make-up, Harmon wasn’t someone you would recognize as a celebrity. But once he laughed, it was easy to discover the clown inside.”
We appreciate the kind words from these journalists and look forward to sharing more media coverage as we close in on the August 17th release date.
