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.

  • Remember Me, Rita Moreno

    CHICAGO – Academy Award winner (in 1962!) Rita Moreno is in the midst of a big media comeback. The 86 year-old actress, who famously portrayed Anita in that Oscar-winning role in “West Side Story,” is in her second season of the “One Day at a Time” reboot on Netflix, and is featured in the indie film “Remember Me,” available now for download and Video On Demand.

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 10th, 2017.
