2012 Why We Still Love Lucy

Why We Still Love Lucy – Tuesday, October 29, 2012


  • Idea:  In this event we will pay homage to one of the greatest woman comediennes of all time – Lucille Ball.  We will show a slide presentation about Lucy’s life and show some clips of her slide-splitting shows. We will have movie-like snacks as we watch the show.
  • Recommended Books: Autobiography entitled Love, Lucy.  The San Francisco Chronicle called it “An intensely moving autobiography…it sparkles with Lucy’s wit and ever-present vitality.”
  • Other books are: The Great Clowns of American Television; and
    TV Comedians by Gary Poole.
  • Venue:  Fremont Main Library, Fukaya Room B
  • Date:  October 29, 2012, 7:00 to 8:30
