Submitter: A book about actors and actresses published in 1961 doesn’t seem too relevant to today’s elementary school students. I’m too young to know any of those people, so the kids surely don’t. I’m a little puzzled by how this book managed to survive multiple rounds of weeding. It was actually checked out about 3 years ago, so maybe there’s a young theatre history buff in the community.
Holly: I know Submitter personally, and I’m older than her by at least 15 years. Only a few of these names slightly ring a bell with me. Kids who were hoping for some celebrity dish on Channing Tatum or Scarlett Johansson (or whoever is popular these days…) will be disappointed. The book has historical value, but not in a suburban public library, which is where it was found.
