Louise Brooks and Lemony Snicket . . .


Came across these interesting references to Louise Brooks in the works of the popular writer known as "Lemony Snicket." 
In the "A Night at the Theatre" section of Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography, the author refers to the "Brooks-Gish Award for Best Actress."
And in The Carnivorous Carnival, which is part of the author's A Series of Unfortunate Events series and which contains other cinematic and literary references, there is a mention of Lulu.
What does it all mean? Is Lemony Snicket a fan of Louise Brooks? Someday I will have to ask Daniel Handler . . . .
