Leeza Gibbons @ Barnes & Noble

Wednesday, Jan. 30

Barnes & Noble
The Summit • 327-0410
Free; 7 p.m.

When I was a tween, I wanted to be Leeza Gibbons. As one of the hosts on “Entertainment Tonight,” I thought she had the perfect job — interviewing celebrities and sitting beside John Tesh. I suppose it’s why I always set my sights on a journalism career — I never wanted to talk to politicians or expose lies, but interviewing Julia Roberts and telling people’s stories — that was the ultimate goal. Luckily I’m now working in the field, and although John Tesh isn’t my coworker, I’ve still been able to interview the likes of Barry Manilow, Joan Rivers and Nancy Wilson. Gibbons will be in town tonight for a reading and signing of her new book, “Take Two: Your Guide to Creating Happy Endings and New Beginnings.” She now co-hosts “America Now” on NBC and “My Generation” on PBS. Let Leeza be your guide to a happy ending. —Sara Havens
