About the event
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Join us to celebrate a legendary and groundbreaking television program! The Jeffersons premeried on January 18, 1975 - 48 years ago to the day of our Los Angeles Breakfast Club meeting!
In 2017 Elva Diane Green’s publisher asked if she would like to take on a book project for the TV sitcom, The Jeffersons. Elva had just completed her first award-winning book, Eddie Green The Rise of an Early 1900s Black American Entertainment Pioneer, and was eager at the point to write a second book. She agreed and on June 22, 2022 BearManor Media published The Jeffersons A fresh look back featuring episodic insights, interviews, a peek behind-the-scenes, and photos.
Elva began her writing journey in 1998 with the intention of only writing one book about her father in order to provide inspiration to her grandson, and along the way discovered her father’s story could inspire anyone struggling because of seeming obstacles.
Writing the book became an enjoyable project. Especially the researching. When she was asked to take on The Jeffersons, the thought of doing the research for a second book was exciting and has led to two more future book projects on Maude, a 1970s TV ground-breaking sitcom that ran for six seasons, and Good Times, another 1970s ground-breaking TV sitcom that ran for six seasons.
Elva is retired from the 9-5 life and has the time to interview people, search out articles on the Web and to participate on social media in order to share her writing progress. She can be found on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and she has her own website – www.pininthetush.com. Her books can be purchased at Amazon.
