Michele Marsh, one of our mountain's shining stars, states that her earliest memories are of Idyllwild, since she was only four when her family moved here from her birthplace in Paris. Although she lived in Los Angeles for most of her adult life, working as an actress in film, television, commercials, and on stage, she kept returning to Idyllwild, as if drawn by a magnet. Professionally, her big break came when she was offered the role of Hodel in the film "Fiddler on the Roof". Television credits date back to Gunsmoke and Quincy, and include more recent shows such as Desperate Housewives and House, M.D.

Please join as she shares stories of her life as an actress and her journey back home to our beloved mountain. Sponsored by the Friends of the Idyllwild Library.

In his rise from a log cabin to wealth and the White House, Millard Fillmore demonstrated that through methodical industry and some competence, an uninspiring man could make the American dream come true." (whitehouse.gov) We have a variety of books at the front desk to choose from, or you may go online to various sources, or you may watch a documentary. There are no rules. The purpose is to become acquainted with our rich and fascinating history and the lives of our leaders. All are welcome.
