This week’s program will include a return visit from Kathryn Leigh Scott. Though most of you know Kathryn for playing Maggie Evans on Dark Shadows, she is also a prolific author and accomplished independent publisher who has written and/or published many books, covering many genres in fiction and nonfiction. Kathryn’s latest book, Last Dance at the Savoy: Life, Love and Caring for Someone With Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, is a personal story about her husband Geoff Miller, the founding editor of Los Angeles magazine, who lived life fully despite having a terminal illness (progressive supranuclear palsy, a neurological condition), and the insights Kathryn learned while dealing with the day-to-day issues of caring for him. Kathryn Leigh Scott will join us in our second hour.
