Reading; RUN, HOLLY, RUN

Run, Holly, Run! is the exciting, but harrowing, true story of former child actress Kathy Coleman – who starred in the hit show, Land of the Lost. Kathy grew up fatherless in Southern California in the 1960s as the last child in a family of 10. Much of her life has been spent searching for the right father figure.

John Kelly of the Washington Post will be our moderator for the evening.
