tv appearance…


i was on the tv show PAN Connection…for 1 hour…which is probably 56 minutes more than necessary…but it is what it is. anyway, i got to talk about my new book SMALL TALK as well as my more than 51 years as a “working” (relative term, for sure) writer.

happily, the program will also be shown in 4 other educational tv markets, including New York City and Baltimore.

i thought i’d share it…
