A “STRONG AS SANDOW” book launch celebration! A visual report

Yesterday, I held a book launch celebration for my new book, STRONG AS SANDOW: HOW EUGEN SANDOW BECAME THE STRONGEST MAN ON EARTH (Charlesbridge, 2017). We held it at BookPeople, Austin’s wonderful independent book store. Attendees described the day as: “Wowza,” “stupendous,” “fantastic.” And most of all, “STRONG!” After I spoke, raw food health guru, Andrew Perlot, served as our resident strongman, performing human kettlebell and barbell. We followed up with physical fitness games for the kids. “The Sandow” cake was created by illustrator and cake maker (cakelustrator) Akiko White. See the cake in the making here!

It was a fun day! Here’s a look:
