Book Club Guide for RADIO GIRL
Orson Welles spent much of his childhood at a boarding school not far from where I live: the Todd School in Woodstock, Illinois, a village northwest of Chicago.
The residents of Woodstock are fully aware of this, and they’re planning big celebrations with film screenings, lectures, exhibits, etc. to commemorate his directorial debut in Woodstock in 1934 (this year) and his 100th birthday in 2015!
Naturally, I plan to attend!
