David Bowie Signing Autograph

Influential artist David Bowie died after a courageously hard fought & long battle with cancer, a frustrating disease that still continues to affect us all regardless of status, age, gender, nationality, wealth, or success.  In addition to his music, Bowie was a noted man of Books who said that “when I'm relaxed what I do is read” furthermore that a good week was one in which the Starman pored through “three or four books”Read about the Icon, who often toured with a personal travelling library of books, & continue to support our collective need to fight cancer.  Remember: it’ll be Hunky dory!
