CHICAGO – The long career of Jamie Lee Curtis has taken her from early “scream queen” status to pitching yogurt. But what is lesser known about the popular actress is that she is a child’s book author of note. “My Brave Year of Firsts” is her tenth collaboration with illustrator Laura Cornell, and she was at Anderson’s Bookshop (Naperville, Ill) last autumn to read excerpts and autograph the book.

“My Brave Year of Firsts” lovingly portrays a child heroine named Frankie, who is trying out so many things for the very first time. This book joins the other Curtis/Cornell titles, including “Tell Me Again About the Night I was Born,” “Is There a Human Race?,” and “Today I Feel Silly, and Other Moods That Make My Day.” Jamie Lee Curtis has been married to comic actor Christopher Guest since 1984, and has two children.

Photographer Joe Arce captured this Exclusive Portrait of Jamie Lee Curtis during an appearance in September of 2012, at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Ill.

  • Wonder Woman

    CHICAGO – There are few films in 2017 that are as historically important as they are cinematically well-crafted. Of those, there is only one I saw three times in theaters. That honor comes in the form of the revolutionary “Wonder Woman,” which not only shows huge promise for the future of DC Comics films but for comic book-based films as a whole.

  • Monica Raymund on set for 'Tanya'

    CHICAGOTV fans know Monica Raymund as paramedic Gabby Dawson on the long-running “Chicago Fire.” But the talented actor is expanding her range, debuting her first film as director, “Tanya,” at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017. The short film – written by Sam Forman – will be part of “Female Filmmakers Night” at the Midwest Indie, and is part of Raymund’s involvement with Hidden Tears Project, an organization dedicated to raising consciousness by creating media on gender inequality, sexual abuse and human trafficking.
