Tonight’s guest is writer and editor JOY M. KISER. When she was an Assistant Librarian at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Ms Kiser saw on display a truly beautiful book from the late nineteenth Century illustrating birds nests. Created  by one Genevieve Estelle Jones it was titled Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio. Kiser discovered that this was virtually a lost book. Although the lithographs rivaled those of Audubon, few people knew of the books existence.

The Anne Walsh Quartet

Nationally renowned vocalist Anne Walsh has an authentic style of singing that is neither purely jazz or purely pop but a rare fusion of the two. Joined by her pianist/husband Tom Zink, and an all star band, Walsh’s selections are rooted in American and Brazilian classics as well as original songs and newly lyricized vocal interpretations of jazz classics from the likes of Keith Jarrett and Pat Metheny. Anne’s most recent performances in LA & Boston have been to capacity houses. “Pretty World” garnered a 2009 Grammy© nomination for best arrangement.
