Marciarose Shestack, broadcast pioneer, will join me at the Free Library, to launch Love: A Philadelphia Affair
Wednesday, July 29, 2015
The first woman to anchor a prime time daily news show in a major market (famously rivaling Walter Cronkite in the ratings). The face of ABC, KYW, Noon News, and her own "Marciarose Show." A film and theater critic. A woman who regularly sat with presidents. A credible and beloved analyst of culture, history, and politics.
Marciarose—still gorgeous. Once my mother's friend, and, today, my own.
How grateful I am to her, then, that she has accepted my invitation to join me on the Free Library of Philadelphia stage as I launch Love: A Philadelphia Affair (Temple University Press) on October 7, at 7:30.
I hope that you will join us—and take this opportunity to meet this Philadelphia legend on a night dedicated to Philadelphia love.
With thanks to Andy Kahan, always, for opening the door.
Love will go on sale on September 7.
