The Jasper Museum in Alberta, Canada is hosting an exhibit featuring photographs and memories of residents who remember when Marilyn came to town to film "River of No Return" in the summer of 1953. The exhibit runs until September 22, 2013.
For those of us unable to see it in person the gift shop is selling a booklet about the exhibit. It features some rare candids I have never seen before. The stories are fun to read - although I wish there was more content. It is a small book so please keep that in mind if you are thinking of ordering it. I think it is worth it for the cover alone. Just fantastic.
The book can be purchased directly from the museum for $9.95 Cdn plus shipping.

My stipulation is that I am not interested in shipping these items - some are too big and fragile to ship. I am looking for Marilyn fans who are able to travel to the Kitchener-Waterloo area in Ontario for pick up only.
If you are interested send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the list and photos.
Thanks ever so!
