Discover What Really Happened on Gilligan’s Island with Castaway Darling Mary Ann Summers
Why did the Howells bring so many clothes, so much money and an endless supply of champagne on a “three-hour tour”? Are you a “Ginger” or a “Mary Ann”? The professor made a telephone from coconut shells, so why couldn’t he fix the S. S. Minnow or build a new boat altogether? And how did they all finally get off that uncharted desert isle? Not only will Ms. Wells reveal the answers to these and other Gilligan’s Island mysteries, she’ll also fill us in on what she’s been up to since her rescue from the island.
For instance, in her recently published book, What Would Mary Ann Do?: A Guide to Life (co-authored with Steve Stinson)—released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Gilligan’s Island and cleverly written from Mary Ann’s perspective—Dawn addresses such topics as dealing with changes in today’s culture and addressing issues confronting single women and mothers. So, sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip . . . and then some!
