Longtime Mammoth resident Bruce Torrence has a new book out, with a book signing at the Booky Joint scheduled for this weekend.
The book, â€śThe Hollywood Canteen Where the Greatest Generation Danced with the Most Beautiful Girls in the World,â€ť documents Torrenceâ€™s long relationship to the world of Hollywood, and most particularly, to the history of the famous canteen that served as a source of solace and entertainment for more than 3 million soldiers who were headed into the inferno of World War II.

It all began last night on the ski hill with a five-course â€śWinemaker Dinnerâ€ť at Parallax, and then continues tonight (Friday) at the Village, with live music by Berel Alexander during the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundationâ€™s â€śWine Walk.â€ť
