Lynn M. Zook grew up in Las Vegas during a mythic time when legendary entertainers performed regularly in town. Large neon signs proclaimed who was appearing in the showrooms up and down the famed Las Vegas Strip. The history of her adopted hometown has always been important to her and she has strived to preserve it through her historic preservation projects and writings. She conducted over 100 oral histories with long-time Las Vegans, created a first-person documentary of the town’s history, and worked with others to save the Las Vegas she knew. She now shares that history through her blog, ClassicLasVegas.com, and through her books.
