Remember mid-April when Peter and I went to Seattle and visited the amazing book stores Elliot Bay Book Company, Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, and Eagle Harbor Books on Bainbridge Island? Well, the primum mobile of our trip to Seattle was an invitation from the public TV program WellREAD to interview me about my memoir. See the bottom of this post OR the landing page of my website for PBS WORLD Channel air dates for the WellREAD TV’s interview. Note that the times are in Eastern Standard Time, so please check the time in your own time zone.

Right: For the first—and probably last—time in my life I had a dressing room with my name on the door! Two on left: Make-up artist Nancy’s professionalism, warmth, and beauty won over my usual “don’t touch me with make-up” attitude!
After last-minute adjustments on the set and in the studio, we are ready to roll. Here is a quick video clip of Elisa’s introduction:
