American presidents, Hollywood superstars, military heroes, politicians, sports icons, business leaders, elected officials...what do they have in common? They belong to the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks
In "Stars of Tomorrow," Hollywood producer J. Herbert Klein writes about the past, present, and future of this esteemed fraternal organization. He also shares his vision for attracting younger members with an Elks-sponsored high school talent competition called STARS OF TOMORROW -- which Klein has dubbed THE WORLD'S BIGGEST REALITY SHOW
Klein's experience producing programs for the Elks goes back to 1968, when he helmed the First American Theatre Awards, a competition for theater majors that concluded in an awards show judged by leading names in show business. "Variety" called the program "quite remarkable," and winner Eric Server went on to enjoy a successful career in television -- appearing on top programs, including " Star Trek, Mission Impossible, " and "Incredible Hulk."
"Stars of Tomorrow" is earning rave reviews from members of the Elks
""Stars of Tomorrow" is a colorful, enlightening and historical walk through the history of the Elks, a fraternal organization of which I'm proud to say I am a member. I have often heard stories of the beginnings of Elkdom, but this book put you in the shoes of Charles Vivian as he stepped off an English trading vessel in the Port of New York and began his journey to the formation of the Jolly Corks and shortly after the formation of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. This book brought so much of the Elks history to life for me. I found it a very interesting read for an Elk wanting to learn more about our great fraternal order." Ted Olsen, Santa Clarita Elks 2370
