My guest was married to legendary actor, singer Theodore Bikel, perhaps best known as Tevye on stage in Fiddler on the Roof.

Before his death, he wrote a children's book called, The City of Light, which, after his death, his wife Aimee expanded and just published.

We discuss the book, its role in helping people deal with insensitivities, and other important messages.
