Thread Name: Att: B.B. King Fans
Subject: Att: B.B. King Fans
My name is Kate, and I'm contacting you from becker&mayer!, a book producer in the
Seattle area. We will be producing a book about B.B. King, written with the help and
cooperation of Mr. King by Dick Waterman and published for Bulfinch Press. Over the next
several weeks, we will be gathering photos, posters, programs, concert tickets,
handwritten notes, letters, postcards, memorabilia having to do with Lucille; anything at
all that captures the essence of B.B.
Anyone that wishes to share any memorabilia or ephemera can ship them to me using our
UPS account number, with the guarantee that we will handle them with special care, and
ship them back promptly. For any items that are chosen for the book, the contributors will
receive credit in the book, as well as receiving complimentary books upon publication.
Please let me know if there is a way I can post this request on your website, in a
newsletter, through emails or snail mail, or any other way you see fit. I'd like to get this
out to as many collectors as possible. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any
questions. You can email me or call 425.827.7120 x156.
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you!
