Welcome!

This site is dedicated to my upcoming book, Marilyn: A Day In The Life, coming out on August 5, 2016. I used to run the site Unraveling The Slander of Marilyn Monroe but have moved everything over here so that I can (hopefully) turn this into a needed resource for the Marilyn community. You can find documents, articles, timelines, etc. on the site with updates throughout the week. Welcome and enjoy!Hat
