Scene @ Denzel Washington’s Book Party

denzel-washington.jpg

We didn’t even know Denzel Washington had a book party last week to celebrate the success of A Hand to Guide Me, his collection of inspirational stories from celebrities about their mentors, so clearly we need to crack the whip a little harder with various publicists. But here he is at the Hudson Hotel’s Library Bar with the book’s production team, authors M.J. Rose and Stan Pottinger. The party was also a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America; we’re tipped that the book’s publisher, Meredith, generously donated $25,000 to the Mt. Vernon Boy’s Club where Washington spent time as a young boy.
