This morning Bernadette read Broadway Barks to a packed room at the Lincoln Triangle Barnes & Noble. She delighted the kids and kids-at-heart with a fun reading and a performance of Kramer's Song, which she wrote herself. Kramer was there as well and let himself be known, after all, he is also quite famous now. After her performance, she took time to sign books for many happy customers. It's always great to see her and she always knows how to make my day. Her publicist asked me if I had to return to work after to which I grumbled an affirmative and the talk led to my career as a paralegal. Bernadette said, "Oh no, she's in show business because I see Sarah everywhere!" It's true, I do get around.
Broadway Barks, an annual event, founded by Bernadette and Mary Tyler Moore, thrown by the Broadway community to promote pet adoption in Shubert Alley. The book is about the journey of a dog found in Central Park who finds his way to Shubert Alley to become part of the annual event. Included is an exclusive CD which features Bernadette reading the story and singing an original song for which she composed the music and lyrics. Bernadette's royalties from the sale of the book will go to the charitable organization, Broadway Barks. This year Broadway Barks celebrates its 10th Anniversary and will be held in Shubert Alley on July 12th.
