The movie Julie & Julia opens in theaters this Friday, and is sure to spark renewed interest in Julia Child.
By the time she died (in 2004) at age 91, Child had, through the magic of television, become famous throughout the world.
Your public library system has dozens of books and videos by and about Julia Child. A list of them has been posted to What’s New at AFPLS?
