Event Notes

× At age six, Karolyn Grimes played the role of Zuzu Bailey in the holiday classic It's a Wonderful Life (1946). Her childhood film career spanned sixteen movies, but she is best remembered for playing the daughter of George and Mary Bailey (James Stewart and Donna Reed). The petals from her rose symbolize the values of family, friends and life itself in the film, and it is Zuzu who speaks the movie's most memorable line, "Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings." In recent years, Karolyn has carried on the spirit of It's a Wonderful Life, serving as the film's most active and appealing ambassador.

Following the discussion, Ms. Grimes will sign copies of her books and film stills.
