Tomie dePaola and Mother Dolores on Stage!

Tomie and Mother Dolores will narrate some of Tomie's stories on stage at The Gary-The Olivia Theater on the grounds of the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut, on June 24 and June 25.  Book autographings will follow the performances.

Mother Dolores was once an actress in Hollywood.  She was then known as Dolores Hart.  She gave Elvis his first on-screen kiss.  A documentary about her was Oscar-nominated several years ago.

Tomie met Dolores Hart a couple of days before she flew to Italy to start filming the movie "Francis of Assisi," released in 1961.
