You’ve seen me talking before about Harriet Glickman, the woman whose letter to Schulz inspired him to create Franklin in the 1960s – the letter itself is included as a pull-out item in my book The Peanuts Collection. Since then, she’s been getting ongoing attention, which hit a high point over the past few days at the NAACP convention in Philadelphia, where she sat for a number of interviews, got recognized by the NAACP, and got honored by the city itself, with a presentation by Mayor Michael Nutter. There’s an article covering some of this here (expect more to come; she did over a dozen media interviews while there) and pictures of her with Mar Mar Tidbit, the voice of Franklin in the upcoming Peanuts movie, here. (And in the small-world department, the pictures here are them being interviewed by Patti Jackson of WDAS – the same radio station where my stepbrother-in-law Tony Brown is host of the 7 PM to midnight shift!)
