LOS ANGELES  Author Jill Nelson has scheduled a return to the Larry Edmunds Bookstore in Hollywood, Calif., to celebrate the first anniversary of her book "Golden Goddesses."

The 950-page volume profiles 25 actresses who were active in adult film between 1968 and 1985, when film began to be replaced by videotape as the medium of choice for adult productions.

"The interviews were conducted to escort readers toward a clearer understanding of the beautiful and intrepid females who favored an alternative profession in adult cinema that was cultivated at the apex of the 1960s sexual revolution," Nelson said. "I've been pleased and gratified by the reaction to the book. For the fans who remember the goddesses, it's a chance to see their careers through their eyes. For the fans who have only watched adult material on home video, it's a look into the recent past of the industry, told by the people who were there."

The signing and panel discussion will take place Wednesday, Oct. 16 at Larry Edmunds Bookshop in Hollywood.

The signing will include a reading of excerpts from the book, and a Q and A session involving Nelson and '70s Golden Age performers Ginger Lynn, Georgina Spelvin, Kay Parker, Rhonda Jo Petty, Kitten Natividad and screenwriter Raven Touchstone.

Larry Edmunds Bookshop is located at 6644 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood. The signing will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Nelson previously co-authored a biography of adult film star John C.Holmes, "A Life Measured in Inches."

Call Larry Edmunds Bookshop to order the book or to RSVP at (323) 463-3273.
