Professional friends and colleagues of psychotherapist and author Gary Vitacco Robles hosted a book launch and signing for the release of his critically acclaimed ICON: The Life, Times & Films of Marilyn Monroe, Volume Two at the Columbia Café in the Tampa Bay History Center Museum on Friday, February 6, 2015.
It was an invitation-only event for Gary's professional network, those with whom he has worked over the last 30 years as behavioral health providers in the Tampa Bay Area. Over 60 people attended over the course of four hours. Gary spoke for about 20 minutes and responded to questions. The ladies were invited to channel their inner Marilyn & wear your most glamorous Monroesque dress. The venue, housed within the museum's exhibit halls, offered a terrace overlooking the Tampa skyline and Old Tampa Bay. There was a cash bar and complimentary appetizers. Guests received gift bags filled with promotion material for volumes one and two, a CD of Marilyn's vocal recordings, a Marilyn Reading Challenge (a list of the 430 books in her personal library auctioned following her death as a benefit to the Literacy Foundation), and some sweet treats.
