Steppin’ Out

On Friday, October 5th at 6:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. I will be on the local PBS program Steppin’ Out¬†hosted by Peggy Scott Laborde.

I come on during the second half to talk about my lecture at the Old U.S. Mint on October 10, 2012.

My Lecture!

I was honored to be on with book critic Susan Larson, opera singer Sarah Jane McMahon and foodie Poppy Tooker.


An Empty Stage


Their studio was damaged during Hurricane Isaac so we taped in another studio, which was why because of space issues my readers were not able to join me.

My big surprise was when my friend Bella Blue showed up to do our makeup. Bella is such a talented performer and all-around awesome person.

Bella Blue!

To show my support for PBS, I wore a very subtle button that I made.

Yay Big Bird... even though I am a Grover fan.

The program went well, and it was fun to see all the behind-the-scenes action.

The group!


Talking about the "Mascot."

Special thanks to Scott Galante, Peggy Scott LaBorde, and John Haffner.

Tune in!
