Never Have Your Dog Stuffed!

aldaJoin us on Friday, July 12th at 7:00pm to discuss Alan Alda’s memoir.

From google:

“Alda has written a memoir as elegant, funny, & affecting as his greatest performance. The son of a popular actor & a loving but mentally ill mother, he spent his early childhood backstage in the erotic & comic world of burlesque & went on, after early struggles, to achieve extraordinary success in his profession. ¬†¬†From the moment as a boy when his dead dog is returned from the taxidermist’s shop, & Alda learns that death can’t be undone, to his decades-long effort to find compassion for the mother he lived with but never knew, to his acceptance of his father, both personally & professionally, Alda learns the hard way that change, uncertainty, and transformation are what life is made of and that true happiness is found in embracing them.”
