Twice a year I visit major media outlets in New York to present books from our newest catalog.  A Spring 2008 catalog title receiving great interest is a memoir written by circus performer Tiny Kline, which is being published forty-four years after her 1964 death.  Tiny played Tinker Bell at Disneyland and was known for sliding hands-free along an elevated cable by a “trapeze” rigged to her teeth.  There is some terrifying YouTube footage from 1932 of her traversing the sky over Times Square hereCircus Queen and Tinker Bell: The Memoir of Tiny Kline, edited by Janet M. Davis, will be published in June 2008 by the University of Illinois Press.
