Revving Up in Reno

I am pleased to announce that I am taking part in "The 1950s: Expanding the American Dream," a symposium sponsored by the National Auto Museum. This year's event will be held April 29 - May 2, 2015, at the museum in Reno, Nevada. Every year, this symposium series examines a different decade, "politically, culturally and socially." My talk will be based on my book The Women Who Made Television Funny, which profiles ten pioneering performers who came to prominence in 1950s TV.

More detail on this event to come, but in the meantime here's an overview. Ready for a trip back in time? I am.

  1. Look at you, David, dashing off to Reno! So glad car enthusiasts found a way to work a book into their programming, beyond the spec manuals for their cars. Don't get too crazy out West.
