The Vegas chapter also made a showing at a particularly emotional panel and book signing held in the Jewel Box theatre at the Clark Country library. Mat Kaufman and Mercedes M. Yardley were involved in the Vegas Strong anthology, which was put together and released within 30 days of last year’s Las Vegas shooting. Mat wrote the foreword, Mercedes contributed a story, and Tim Chizmar came down to support. All stories, editing, art, etc. were donated, and the proceeds go to the Code Green Campaign, which offers services and support to first responders. It was a heartfelt panel where authors discussed the impact the tragedy had on their lives as well as answering questions from the audience.
