2022.04.10 Pink And Say LIVE Radio Performance

04.10.2022  Yesterday I learned the sad news that a friend I hadn't seen in so many years -- the wonderfully talented and charming Ms. Billie Harris -- passed away peacefully surrounded by family. 

I first met Billie back in 1997 when I was cast in a small ensemble role in a play she was co-starring in at Cabrillo Stage. It was during that play's run that she invited me to be a guest on her live radio show From The Bookshelf on KUSP. I'm so grateful I found this treasured gem of our time together -- I had the privilege to read the award winning children's book *"Pink And Say"* written by Patricia Polacco -- this is the recording of that performance captured live that Sunday evening January 4th 1998. 

I'm so happy I found this to be able to share with you. It really is such a powerful, heartwarming story -- one beloved by adults and children alike -- I hope you'll have the chance to find a quiet space, maybe curl up with a blanket and a cup of coffee or tea or cocoa, and join me in listening to Patricia Polacco's beautiful book and remembering my friend Billie Harris. 

Billie was always so sweet and so kind to me, I'll miss her and remember her fondly, and my heart and prayers go out to her family and loved ones.
