Vegas 360 book-launch party

Early this year, shortly after resigning from CityLife, I wrote an essay for a book featuring panoramic photos of Las Vegas. The book, Vegas 360 (BrightCity Books), will be available at a launch party and photo-exhibit opening Friday at the Las Vegas Art Museum. Vegas 360 features 64 full-color photos by Thomas R. Schiff and essays by UNLV English professor Douglas Unger, CityLife staff writer David Surratt, Review-Journal special projects editor A.D. Hopkins and others. My essay runs with pictures of Caesars Palace and talks about what’s beneath the historic hotel-casino.

The Vegas 360 book-launch party and photo-exhibit opening will be held Friday, Oct. 24, from 5-7 p.m. at the Las Vegas Art Museum (9600 W. Sahara Ave. ). For more info on the event, call 702-360-8000 or visit For more info on the book, visit (which is under construction and should be up soon).


The last two weeks have been insane, with the book-launch party and all. I finally have a few minutes to blog about the party. Yes, a few minutes.

The party went really, really well. A lot of close friends and family members showed up. Deke Castleman, who edited Beneath the Neon, flew in from the Reno area and the designer Kat Topaz flew in from Portland, Ore., with her baby girl Odessa. Very cool.

Also, a lot of local writers attended: John L. Smith, Joshua Ellis, Brian Rouff, Cathy Scott, Bill Branon, H. Lee Barnes, Chip Mosher, Andrew Kiraly and others. Yes, very cool.

I want to thank Becki Davis of Huntington Press, Evette Jensen of the Arts Factory and Paymon Raouf of Paymon’s Mediterranean Café for helping make the party happen. Thanks, y’all!

Finally, some of Danny Mollohan’s black-and-white prints are left over from the party. If anyone wants a print, contact Danny at 702-807-9386 or He can make prints of any photos from the book or from his page,
