On a very special episode of Reading Aloud, Nate has a spectacular conversation with Kelly Carlin who has a new book out “A Carlin Home Companion: Growing Up with George,” all about growing up with her father George Carlin in Southern California. They chat about how the comedy community came to lift Kelly up and invited her to be part of the family after her father passed, the moment you realize that your parents are human, Kelly’s one-person show being the predecessor to her book, and the practice of being kind of loving to yourself when your mind wanders. Get into the Halloween spirit and get a head start on the next book club selection by picking up “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson and send in your thoughts on the book at firstname.lastname@example.org.
