Don and Petie Kladstrup – “Champagne Charlie: The Frenchman Who Taught Americans to Love Champagne.”
COB has a double header. Wash Post editor and writer and author of the Miss America history “There She Was,” Amy Argetsinger joins David and Torie. They break down Christmas movies and books and the women crushing best sellers lists. Award winning journalists who love wine, baseball and France, Don and Petie Kladstrup, zoom in from Paris to share “Champagne Charlie,” the remarkable story of the 1850s Frenchman who stormed America, drove sales and almost died when charged with spying for the Confederacy. Then a COB fave, Kate Anderson Brower, returns with “Elizabeth Taylor: The Grit and Glamour of an Icon,” the extraordinarily comprehensive authorized biography of the legendary icon whose life as mother, wife, actress and activist is so much more than you knew.
