Author, filmmaker, and actor Leslie Zemeckis hosts a reading of her latest book, Feuding Fan Dancers: Faith Bacon, Sally Rand, and the Golden Age of the Showgirl by 2005 Miss Exotic World Michelle L’amour, performer and photographer Bettina May, and performer and BHoF collection assistant Darby Fox on Friday, November 16, 8-10pm.
Leslie Zemeckis continues to discover the forgotten feminist histories of the golden age of entertainment, turning her sights on the lost stories of Sally Rand and Faith Bacon—icons who each claimed to be the inventor of the notorious fan dance. Naked Girls Reading is proud to partner with BHoF to present excerpts from this compelling story of two brave women from another era.
Copies of Feuding Fan Dancers will be available for purchase in our museum store and Ms. Zemeckis will be available for signing.
