Friend, journalist, news anchor and author Ann Nyberg has just penned a wonderful book about Connecticut’s born and bred, Katharine Hepburn.
A decades long fan, Ann had read a lot about her. Even tried to interview her once, getting so far as short phone conversation, which was quite an accomplishment as Hepburn was famous for being very private and rarely granted interviews. Years later, after becoming a founding trustee of the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Katharine’s beloved town of Old Saybrook, Ann got to know her even more through the townspeople. Approached by Globe Pequot Publishers, Ann gladly accepted the challenge of writing a book about one of the most iconic actresses of the 20th century.
Brimming with stories never heard before, from people that knew Katharine, including the legendary talk show host Dick Cavett, the book is filled with beautiful photographs and many of her sayings that are still quoted to this day.
The book “Remembering Katharine Hepburn: Stories of Wit and Wisdom About America’s Leading Lady” is coming out in October and can be pre-ordered via this link:, http://www.amazon.com/Remembering-Katharine-Hepburn-Stories-Americas/dp/1493025457
Well done Ann! I can’t wait!
