Penny Marshall Played an Underachiever on TV. In Real Life She Was Anything But

In the olden days of TV, long before Netflix or binge-watching and certainly before DVRs, people used to tune in on certain days and times to watch the shows they liked: If you were a kid in the mid-1970s—maybe, particularly, a girl—one of those shows was likely to be Laverne & Shirley, the Happy Days…

Snuggle In With These 5 Fall Reading Picks

In 2018 I promised myself to read more. I made myself accountable by doing two things: 1) joining a book club that would encourage me to read books not of my choosing and broaden my horizons and, 2) keep a list of all the books I read so I could see the list grow.
