Former Las Vegas showgirl gives Valentine’s Day Reno book signing


LOVE TARGET, front coverEnjoy a Valentine’s Day book signing with former Las Vegas showgirl Heidi Loeb Hegerich. She’ll be signing her debut novel, Love Target, on Saturday, February 14, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., at Sundance Books and Music, 121 California Avenue, in Reno.

Love Target follows young Ingrid Liebschreiber, a German immigrant in America, as she makes her way alone in the world—first as an underage Las Vegas showgirl, then as an aspiring New York model as the 1960s develop into a wild decade.

Part fictional memoir, part historical novel, part love story, Love Target is an adventure with a colorful cast of characters set in an unforgettable time. The book includes illustrations by world-class artist John Bardwell.

Heidi Loeb Hegerich, a resident of Reno, Nevada, has lived in places as varied as Munich, Las Vegas, Miami Beach, New York City, Los Angeles and Squaw Valley.

She has worked variously as a showgirl, business executive, entrepreneur, interior designer and real estate developer.

A philanthropist for the arts, among other causes, Hegerich is now embarking on her own artistic quest as an author. The novel Love Target, published in May 2014, is her first book.
