With the holidays quickly approaching, cherishing moments with family and friends seems to be of more importance. People are generally more thoughtful, more forgiving – or maybe more tolerant – and more loving. Memories are shared. Laughter is had.

On the December 21st, 2016 edition of A Public Affair, Lilada Gee speaks with Reverend Dr. Alexander Gee, who has been both a guest and a guest host, Fabu Carter, Kari Paterson, and Bobby Moore.
Fabu Carter was appointed Madison’s Poet Laureate in 2008 and served in that position until 2011. She is currently an outreach specialist with Geriatrics and Gerontology and the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC).
