Congrats, Bette Midler, on Your Kennedy Center Honors!

Bette, and also Joni Mitchell, Lorne Michaels, and Motown’s Berry Gordy

Tonight, I was flipping through channels and stopped just in time to see a fan of one of my books accept her Kennedy Center Award from the President. Congratulations, Bette Midler. I am kvelling from ear to ear! Bette of course plugged my book No Applause in People magazine a few years ago. I’ve blogged about her here, here, and also, here. I also have a post about fellow honoree Lorne Michaels which I wrote here — don’t know if he is a fan of of my books, but I’m quite sure some SNL staff have been, over the years! So congratulations to you and all the rest! More on the 2021 Kennedy Center honors and honorees here,
