Marilyn Monroe: The Girl, The Woman and The Legend
presented by Marilyn Carminio
Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 2 pm

Nearly 60 years after her death Marilyn Monroe remains an American cultural icon. Biographers have tried to define the mystery of her allure. She is a study in contrasts: beautiful and sexy yet sweet and vulnerable, sensitive and insecure. Offscreen she was a humanitarian, an early supporter of civil rights, and a lover of books. Though her life was short and tragic, her star still shines brightly. This visual presentation will tell her story in her own words, through her movies and the recollections of those who knew her.

About the presenter:


Marilyn Carminio worked for many years at an international law firm where she developed and presented client servicetraining programs. She began her career as a NYC schoolteacher and went on to hold various positions at women's magazines such as Cosmopolitan, where she worked for Helen Gurley Brown, Elle Magazine, and New Woman. She has lectured at over 100 venues including: The Hutton House Lecture Series at C.W. Post, libraries throughout Long Island, the Roslyn Historical Society, Meadowbrook Pointe in Westbury, the Meadowbrook Women's Initiative, Hadassah groups and women's clubs.

Marilyn puts her heart and soul into preparing her multimedia presentations. She selects subjects for which she has a passion, which is richly conveyed through to the audience.
