Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Celebrated Hollywood historian Laurie Jacobson on her years studying improv with Harvey Lembeck (and the many famous actors who would drop in on Harvey’s classes unannounced from week to week), taking acting lessons from Russell Johnson (and how The Professor took his role as teacher very seriously), and why cookbooks will never go out of style, especially right now. Laurie’s latest book, TV DINNERS: 40 Classic Kids Dish Up Recipes with a Side of Memories, features recipes from many of your favorite stars of the Baby Boomer generation, including Annette Funicello, Jerry Mathers, Paul Peterson, Jeannie Russell, Jay North, Kathy Garver, Alison Arngrim, and Jon Provost. Some of the profits from sales of TV DINNERS will support the efforts of A MINOR CONSIDERATION, the non-profit organization that helps child stars, past and present, make the often difficult transition from child acting to adult life
