  1. I lived in Tacoma for 23 years (1965-1988) I was an ‘Emmy’ award-winning PBS producer-writer-moderator at KTPS-TV. I also taught in the public schools and occasionally part time at both universities and communitiy colleges there. My passion is reading aloud. I returned to Tucson six years ago and in June 2005 I created “The Desert Readers.” This volunteer group of seniors read aloud light-hearted,uplifting selections including humorous jokes, short inspirational stories and essays as well as memorable poetry. In addition, we provide ‘sing-a-longs’ with each performance. We perform at assisted living, health care and other senior living residences throughout Tucson. In the past five years TDR has presented more than 320 performances. Our Vice-President Spotligh Session at the Southern States Communication Association Covention in April 2008 entitled: “Communicating to Change the Human Condition by ‘Making a Difference’ in the Lives of Senior Citizens” illustrated the effectiveness of this unique community service outreach program.
