The 20th stamp in the United States Legends of Hollywood commemorative series, honoring actress Shirley Temple, will be issued April 18.
A 1:30 p.m. first-day ceremony will take place at the Geffen Playhouse, 10886 Le Conte Ave., in Los Angeles, Calif. The event is open to the public.
The forever stamp features a painting of Temple as a young actress from her 1935 film Curly Top.
Temple was born in 1928 and became one of America’s biggest film stars while still a child. She retired from moviemaking at age 21, and later had a successful career in diplomacy, serving as a United Nations delegate in 1969, and U.S. ambassador to Ghana beginning in 1974. She died in 2014.
