Mentions in Nora's Books

“I like that better. Everyone’s connected. It’s not just Kevin Bacon. 
If you work at it, you can put a handful of degrees between 
almost any two people.”

Blood Brothers 


"Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a parlour game based on the "six degrees of separation" concept, which posits that any two people on Earth are six or fewer acquaintance links apart. Movie buffs challenge each other to find the shortest path between an arbitrary actor and prolific actor Kevin Bacon. It rests on the assumption that anyone involved in the Hollywood film industry can be linked through their film roles to Bacon within six steps. The game requires a group of players to try to connect any such individual to Kevin Bacon as quickly as possible and in as few links as possible." in wikipedia

Find the Bacon Number

The Bacon number of an actor or actress is the number of degrees of separation they have from the actor Kevin Bacon.
This is an application of the Erdős number to the Hollywood movie industry.
The higher the Bacon number, the farther away from Kevin Bacon the actor is.
