IN 1945, Betty MacDonald's first book, "The Egg and I, " took first America, and then the world, by storm. Writing about her adventures as a young wife on a chicken farm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state, the book was a breath of fresh air to a world that, in the wake of WWII, sorely needed it. From 1927 to 1931, Betty lived with her first husband near Chimacum, Washington - a newlywed doing her best to adjust to and help operate their small chicken farm. "The Egg and I" enjoyed enormous success, selling over 1, 000, 000 within ten months of it's original publication. It was adapted for stage, radio and screen, with the movie version starring Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray. The movie version also introduced the world to Ma and Pa Kettle, the eccentric country bumpkins portrayed by the inimitable Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride, who were so popular that a string of spin-off movies was made about their adventures. Betty MacDonald wrote three other memoirs, as well as the still popular Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series for children, and is recognized by many as an important America humorist. Shortlisted for the 2015 Voice Arts Awards, one audible customer wrote: "The moment it finished I started listening again!"
