Peggielene Bartels's real-life fairy tale about being chosen as king in an African village has inspired positive reviews from BookBrowse readers. 22 out of 25 people rate King Peggy 4 or 5 stars! Here's what they have to say:What a wonderful book! It shows what one seemingly small, insignificant person can do to change the lives of so many people. King Peggy is my new hero. Long live the King (Kat F)! She accepts the job not knowing how run-down and rife with thievery the place has become. It's a fascinating read of what one person with determination can do (Shelby L). The story of what Peggy accomplishes is nothing short of amazing. The book is full of many interesting characters, and the often dire situations are described with a good deal of humor. This is a wonderful, uplifting story (Donna W)...continued

Readers unite! The PM Book Discussion Group is our very own book club that brings readers of all ages together to share thoughts and grow in faith. The group meets once every two months to join in fellowship and discuss a book they read the weeks before. One member will lead the discussion and provide insight into the story and its relevance to the Christian faith.
Toastmasters is an international organization dedicated to improving communication and leadership skills. The club at King of Kings includes some faith-based aspects that members might not find in other clubs. Members find fellowship through weekly interactions, improved listening skills, increased comfort when speaking with groups of any size (both formally and extemporaneously), and improved communication and leadership skills.
Along with Tony Bennett, Peggy King is among the very last certifiable stars of radio, television, motion pictures, theaters, nightclubs and recordings still working today. Shes packed a lot into a whirlwind career of the 1950s and early 1960s, working with everyone from Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr. to André Previn and a three-year association with comedian George Gobel; appearing in films like Zero Hour; singing at the 1955 Oscar Awards telecast; entertaining U.S. troops overseas with Bob Hope during the Korean War; and recording for Columbia Records, among others. In 1961, she married After Six Formal Wear Chairman/President Samuel Rudofker, started a family in Philadelphia, and left the business. Aside from a brief re-entry onstage and with new recordings made during the mid-1980s, Peggy King did not perform in public professionally again until almost two years ago, when she met pianist Andy Kahn, drummer Bruce Klauber, and bassist Bruce Kaminsky, members in long-standing42 years, to be exactof Philadelphias popular jazz ensemble The All-Star Jazz Trio. -Bruce KlauberTracklisting:01.

I liked the structure of the three parts with the prelude, interludes and postludes, I thought that was a great way of breaking things up and that it worked quite well, as each section of the book covers a different stage of the Revolutionary War.

The "retro" look of the film, in both the present and past stories, ties into current fashion. The use of pastels in the opening credits exemplifies this appropriation of 1950s styles that have been recycled by the fashion industry. Indeed, what seems striking about the film's look is how similar the two different historical moments, 1960 and 1985, look. The characters' clothes and hairstyles stay almost the same in the contemporary and back-in-past sections: Charlie's bouffant, Walter's flattop, Peggy Sue and both her girlfriends' hairstyles and dresses. The r&b club, with its neon, passes as 1950s but evokes the current popularity of neon and its widespread use.
