The Supremes were the ultimate girl group — and though Diana Ross garnered the most fame, Mary Wilson was responsible for one third of the group's output. She's also the only Supremes member that was part of the group for its full 18 year run. She'll be at Sacred Heart's Edgerton Center Friday night to sing her hits, and if you're a student it costs an entirely reasonable $25 for the show. Your reading assignment leading up the performance is Wilson's 1986 bestseller Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme in which she describes the trail she helped blaze as a female performer in the early, male-dominated music industry.
