Alan Cumming Interview and Happy Birthday Professional Book Nerds!

| E:73

This is the one year anniversary episode of the Professional Book Nerds podcast! Thank you so much to our listeners, whether you've been with us from the beginning or are a brand new listener, and everyone in between. We've come a long way since our humble beginnings and we wouldn't be here without all of you.

As a fun treat, Adam and Jill got to interview author and actor Alan Cumming and took what can only be described as the best selfie ever. Alan discusses his books, his careers, and more in this special live interview. Alan is the author of the novel Tommy's Tale, the memoir Not My Father's Son, and the brand-new photo biography You Gotta Get Bigger Dreams.

Episode was recorded live at the Parma-Snow branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library on December 4, 2016.
