When CBS comes calling







Here's Erin Moriarty of CBS Sunday Morning with me in my living room in Amherst. Erin and producer Kay Lim came up to do a story on memory, memoir, and the portrayals of our father in A Wolf at the Table and Look Me in the Eye.

The segment should air in early July. I'll let you know when they schedule it.

The filming was done over two days at my brother's house and my house. It's amazing how much video they shoot to make a ten-minute segment on network television. I'll bet they went back to New York with eight hours of video.

Oooh! Wiggle those ears away!!

I LOVED both Look Me In The Eye and A Wolf at the Table!! Many people live vicariously through your vivacious character in both those reads. Glad your guys stuff is getting the recognition it deserves!!

Dear Mr. Robison,

I just finished reading your book and I absolutely LOVED it! I think that a lot of people can relate to it and feel less alone. Good luck with everything!

Either you're really really tall, or she's really really petite.

John Elder Robison said...

Kanani, I prefer to think I am standard size, and all the females who appear next to me in photos are petite.

I missed the last one. I hope to catch this one. In the meantime I'll review the links in your later post.

Smiling! Who knew?

John,

Uh, is it me, or do you look completely different? Something in your energy and presence. Feeling good?

John Elder Robison said...

Drama Mama, I think I doo look different as a result of the TMS. Look at the interviews on the Medill interview post (a week later) and see what you think.

Woof!

Rustic Living Room Furniture sets augment the overall beauty of any room. With various room decoration items and gadgets flooding the market, it may sometimes be very confusing as what furniture’s to select for your living rooms - furniture’s which suit your tastes, match your room's environment and of course meet your budget! However, rustic furniture sets have an all-time appeal because of their simple yet versatile designs and light-weight (can easily be shifted from one room to other). http://rustic-living-room-furniture.blogspot.com
