What we're reading: We're already aching for a summer road trip (move faster, Spring!), but since we've got our nose to the grindstone prepping for the 2014 Tony Awards, we'll have to live vicariously through Bette Midler's re-released memoir A VIEW FROM A BROAD.

And finally, a Happy Birthday flashback to Mary Pickford, who was born on this day in Toronto in 1892 and passed away in 1979 at the age of 87. Pickford began in the theatre at age 7, often known as 'Baby Gladys Smith', touring with her family in several regional companies. She made her Broadway debut in 1905 in Edmund Burke, followed by The Warrens of Virginia in 1907 and A Good Little Devil in 1913. Pickford, a key player in the silent film era, was a co-founder of the film studio United Artists and one of the original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She starred in 52 feature films throughout her career.
