I have a Board Meeting I need to prepare for so today isn't necessarily a "happy" Monday, but I'm still feeling upbeat. :-)
Last night I happened to get an newsletter email from my library with various events listed for the week. I noticed that one night will be an Abbott and Costello tribute.
* This program will also feature a showing of Abbott and Costello's 1955 movie classic "Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy!"
* There will be a special appearance by Perky Peggy King, legendary vocalist, TV and movie actress...who has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a role in the Mummy movie!
Now, Abbott and Costello was obviously before my time, but I have seen a few of their movies and of course, know a few of their famous routines. I even put a small reference in my book Fiancé by Fate to them. My lead character, Sabrina, and her co-worker, Chris, are kind of going back and forth in a cute dialogue scene, where Chris then asks Sabrina, "Who are you, Bud Abbott?"
How old are these readers? Twelve? And isn't it good to have a reference so maybe they'll look it up and learn?
