Broadway Gal Hits the Red Carpet

At the recent American Library Association (ALA)/Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) Caldecott 75th anniversary banquet, Broadway Gal, former head of MPL youth services, appeared on the Kidlit Red Carpet wearing her button dress.  Want to see the video?  Naturally.

Broadway Gal Interview on the Kidlit Red Carpet

That wonderful dress will soon be on display at my Library!  Not with Broadway Gal inside, however.  After all, she has work to do at the Indiana State Library. 

Sammy the Toucan, our former early literacy spokescritter, was uncharacteristically quiet in the video, I noticed.  Camera shy?  Hard to imagine, knowing Sammy.

P.S.  "Buttons and Bows" (1947), composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, appeared in the movie The Paleface (1948), starring Jane Russell and Bob Hope.  The tune won the Academy Award for best original song.  Dinah Shore's cover (1947) topped Billboard's pop charts in 1948.


  1. Livingston & Evans also composed the theme music to the classic television series, "Mister Ed" (1961-1966).

  2. Oh, PS: Sammy wants to make sure you saw that Sammy was in the video as well.
