A Refreshing Read

Two great loves—books and cocktails— converged on July 15 at the Golden Nugget, as the Vegas Valley Book Festival hosted its poolside Shake and Stir party. The event raised funds for the ninth annual literary fest, which is set for Nov. 3-7 and will include panel discussions, workshops and exhibitions. Notable attendees included chef Rick Moonen (above, center), artist Princess Ann and festival program coordinator Richard Hooker.
