“Do teens today know who Jennifer Grey is?”

Conversation with a friend while I worked on my booktalk of My Big Nose (and Other Natural Disasters)

Miss Print: “Do teens today know who Jennifer Grey is?”

CC: “I don’t know who that is. Should I feel bad?”

Miss Print: “Yes. But your not knowing her answers that question. She was in Dirty Dancing.”

CC: “Ooooooh! I do know her!”

Miss Print: “But if you don’t know her name it’s not worth mentioning in my booktalk.”
