In the 1920s, Diana Serra Cary was known as "Baby Peggy." Signed to a million dollar contract at age five, this child actress was once one of the biggest little film star celebrities in the world. At this special event, Cary will speak about her remarkable life in Hollywood more than 80 years ago, her recent work as a writer and film historian, and her lifelong love of books and reading. A short film is included and a book signing will follow.
This event is offered in conjunction with the library exhibition "Reading the Stars: The Silent Era." For a special tour with exhibit curators, please meet in the Main Library's Steve Silver Room on the 4th Floor at 1 p.m.
