‘Immortal Marilyn’ Author in Boston

John De Vito, co-author (with Frank Tropea) of the 2006 book, The Immortal Marilyn: The Depiction of An Icon, will speak about Monroe at the Rabb Lecture Hall at Boston Public Library on Thursday, August 2, at 2pm, and at the East Boston branch on Monday, August 13, at 6pm, reports Back Bay Patch.

Free screenings of classic Monroe movies will also be held on Monday evenings throughout August, with Niagara on August 6; Bus Stop on the 13th; The Misfits on the 20th; and Some Like it Hot on the 27th.

‘Immortal Marilyn’ in New Hampshire

John De Vito and Frank Tropea, authors of Immortal Marilyn: The Depiction of an Icon (Scarecrow Press, 2007), will give a free lecture on MM in the Levenson Community Room, Portsmouth Public Library, New Hampshire, on January 18 at 7.3o pm.

As their book focused on representations of Marilyn in the performing arts, I wonder if they will mention recent works like My Week With Marilyn and the upcoming TV series, Smash?
