I thought I was the only person in the world who had thought of reading Tina Fey’s book along with Mindy Kaling’s. Okay, I was wrong. Here’s a wonderful, delightful and insightful comparison of the autobiographies of two great comic artists. Thank you, Marsha, for passing it along!
I had an opening at Images Gallery at 1823 W. Wilson Saturday night. It was the shortest, but maybe the best. I’m continuing to work on my memoir of childhood, the part of my childhood spent on the west side of Chicago, concentrating on my building and the stories of my neighbors. Thanks to Google, I can see those buildings and remember our lives. My block remains as it was, except for the corner mom and pop grocery store, replaced by a Citgo gas station. When I see the buildings, I remember the people. It’s more difficult when I have no aid to memory. I can’t go around the block in my head now that the neighborhood stores no longer exist.
Thank you, Susan F., for passing on this Daily Kos post by Leslie Salzillo to us. Sylvia would love to pose for such a photo with Governor Perry.
