Bookstore honors author Michael Connelly
Michael Connelly became the second author honored to have his signature and handprints placed into Vroman’s Bookstore Walk of Fame. Connelly follows Lisa See who was inducted in 2014.
Connelly, a former newspaper reporter, is a bestselling author of twenty-nine novels and one work of nonfiction.
Similar to the Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, which primarily honors those in the entertainment field, Vroman’s dedicated a portion of its entryway to great authors.
A crowd of about 60, including Vroman’s President Allison K. Hill and Pasadena Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Paul Little, circled the cement plaque to honor Michael Connelly. The author spoke briefly, chiefly thanking those involved in his success.
Connelly placed hands into the cement, then dated and signed it.
