Sons of the Desert: The Conventions

By Savannah Furman
Furman Press, P.O. Box 260141. St. Louis, MO 63126
328 Pages; 2002
ISBN 0-9719085-0-8 (Paperback)

This book is not really as much about Laurel and Hardy as it is about some of their most die-hard fans. Since 1978, L&H fans from around the world have gathered every two years for international conventions. The first twelve of these conventions are detailed in this book, as told by those who attended. This includes information about various activities, celebrity guests, and after hour antics that make each convention memorable. The book is well written and researched. Filled with photos, this book is a must for any Son of the Desert who has attended a convention.
