Blurb: 
Pearl Bailey, one of our great national resources and an irresistible bundle of energy, is back. A fearless professional who changse work hats more often than her trademark turbans, the priceless Pearl has collected gems of wit and wisdom for Between You and Me. Known affectionately by thousands throughout the world as "Aunt Pearl," Miss Bailey has accumulated a lifetime of experience, strength, and love that is an inspiration to us all. At the golden age of sixty-seven, Pearl Bailey stood in a sea of twenty-year-olds to receive her college degree from Georgetown University. In the first section of this heartwarming and funny book, Pearl tells tales about the often hilarious, always moving life of the oldest undergrad on campus. Through her example, we are taught the most important lesson of all; that we are never too old to learn. The stories Miss Bailey shares are, in turn, disturbing and uplifting. Here"s a woman who has entertained for the Shah of Iran, lazed away on an old-fashioned porch swing with a shoeless King Hussein, and mingled with the Gorbachevs at a White House gala. In fact, as she often tells her audiences, Miss Bailey has been to the White House so many times that she now just refers to it as "the House." Like letters from a wise and beloved friend, Between You and Me is full of intimacy, fun, and homespun common sense. Entertainer, globe-trotter, wife, mother, friend, student -- honey, this is one multi-faceted Pearl!
