THE MADE IN 1938 BLOGATHON IS HERE

jezebelbanner

When my friend Robin from Pop Culture Reverie kindly asked me a few months ago if I wanted to co-host a blogathon with her that celebrates the cinematic year of 1938, I euphorically agreed. I seen this as a great opportunity to honor my grandmother, who was born in 1938. She’s also an avid fan of classic Hollywood, and when she found out that a blogathon is being hosted in her honor, she was thrilled. We definitely can’t blame her.

Please join Robin and myself for the next few days while we celebrate this wonderful year in film with an impressive list of articles written by bloggers. A big thank you to those of you who have taken the time to participate. We look forward to reading your posts.

P.S. : Please stay tuned as I will be announcing two other blogathons soon, one of them being a 1937 blogathon dedicated to my beautiful aunt, who passed away on December 31st, 2016. She was born that year.
