Come up and see MAE in the mid-WEST in mid-September.
• • Not far from the Windy City is the sweet suburb called Plainfield.
• • On 16 September 2007, from 3:00 — 4:00 PM, there will be an excellent tribute to MAE WEST — — by impressionist Mary Anne Burkhalter.

During her astounding 80-year career, Miss West said she had "been things and seen places," and Mary Anne would like to take you on a tour of a great life, and bring you face-to-face with an American legend.
