book review of Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years

Thanks to chipmunkalvyne from The Audrey Hepburn Circle for pointing out that there's a videotaped review of Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years up on You Tube. The book won't be out in the US until the end of this month (March 29, to be exact), so it's exciting to get an Audrey fan's perspective on the book while also getting a sneak peek at all the pictures. Don't worry, there's enough of the book left unseen to make your first go-round with your own copy as exciting as ever.

You can pre-order here if you haven't already. And if you don't mind sneak peeks, Amazon has some fantastic previews up already.

Next up, Ray-Ban is having an advertising contest for the month of March. If you own a pair of Ray-Bans, whether they be the classic Wayfarers that Audrey and James Dean sported back in the 50s or a more modern make, Ray-Ban wants to see you wearing them! Your picture could be posted in Times Square for all to see. Click here for the entry form and more details.

And finally, a reader from the Hamilton Spectator wrote in to thank the media for finally giving Audrey Hepburn credit as a humanitarian and activist, and not just as another pretty face. It's a short but sweet letter that you can read in its entirety here.
