X Child Stars : Where Are They Now?

Here's another 2016 book that, for me anyway, turned out to be addictive. I know, I know -- I could have Googled all these stars' names and found good information about them, but then I would first have had to know what names to look up. Kathy Garver, child actress on Family Affair in the late 1960s and early 1970s, has written this book that categorizes child actors by the programs in which they starred and includes biographies that bring each actor's story up to the current date. Covered are shows from the 1950s, beginning with I Love Lucy and ending with the 1980s and Family Matters. It's nice that each chapter begins with a summary of the show, telling how many seasons the show aired, on what network and when, and giving other historical details. Anyone who saw TV during the years covered will find much to like about this volume.
