What Are You Reading in March?

March is a transitional month: the weather, seasons, and reading habits are all in flux. For me, the latter has been a big disappointment. I still haven’t been able to get my reading pace up to its normal levels. Oh, well! There’s always April!

Since 1st March, I’ve read:

  • I Loved Her in the Movies: Memories of Hollywood’s Legendary Actresses by Robert Wagner and Scott Eyman
I’m currently reading:
  • Hot from Harlem: Twelve African American Entertainers, 1890-1960 by Bill Reed
  • You Must Remember This: Life and Style in Hollywood’s Golden Age by Robert Wagner and Scott Eyman

I promise to do better in April!

We are so excited to announce the Dorothy Lamour Blogathon!

Wouldn’t you agree it’s time we celebrated this talented woman? Dorothy was much more than the sarong she became famous for – she was a singer, an actor, a mother and a dynamic fundraiser of American WWII war bonds.

Our fab friend Maedez at Font and Frock and A Small Press Life suggested we toast the remarkable Dorothy Lamour, and so we shall: March 11-13, 2016.

For the blogathon, you can write on any movie or subject associated with Ms Dorothy, including her film, theatre or television appearances. Duplicate topics are A-OK.

A list of Ms Dorothy’s movies can be found HERE.

You can sign up using the form below, which was designed by our smarty-pants friend Kristina at Speakeasy.

Please help yourself one the banners below to help us promote the event.

We hope to see you in March!

Here’s the roster so far. (You…
