From 1968-1982, Dick Cavett played host to the nation's most famous personalities on his late-night talk show. Pull up a chair and listen to Cavett's best tales from his book Talk Show, as he recounts great moments with the legendary entertainers who crossed his path; stories about one-upping Bette Davis, testifying on behalf of John Lennon, scheming with John Updike, befriending William F. Buckley, and palling around with Groucho Marx. A book signing will follow the program.
