Dick Cavett and Alec Baldwin have both acted, written books and hosted talk shows.
Cavett’s latest book, Brief Encounters: Conversations, Magic Moments, and Assorted Hijinks, shares his reflections and reminiscences about Hollywood legends, American cultural icons and the absurdities of everyday life. He offers piquant commentary on contemporary politics, the indignities of travel, the nature of comedy writing and the utter improbability of being alive at all. Who better to be in conversation with the legendary Cavett than the one and only Alec Baldwin? Not to be missed!
