Betty White was born in Oak Park in 1922. She is, of course, famous for her superbowl ad and her appearance on SNL. She will be in the area on May 7 to sign her memoir If You Ask Me. Unfortunately for her fans in the western suburbs, the appearance will only be in Skokie at the Barnes & Noble in Old Orchard Center.
When I checked out her bio I was amazed at her accomplishments. I knew that she has been working as an actress for years, but didn't realize that she's also published five books. The literary tradition of Oak Park continues!
