I had the pleasure of interviewing Carolyn Hennesy for the Athens Banner-Herald, and we found out we're both trapeze enthusiasts. She dropped by Canopy Studio last night while I was teaching a trapeze class and we chatted for a few minutes about how her reading at Borders Book Store went. She's very excited to be in Athens and I think tonight at Cine should be very fun! Check out her web site--info on her new show, "Cougar Town," starring Courteney Cox, is there, as well as Carolyn's bio, etc.
