Monday on “City Lights with Lois Reitzes:”

  • 1:24: Atlanta actor/playwright Lee Osorio and director Nichole Palmietto of Found Stages partnered with Dunwoody Nature Center to present a live reading of Osorio’s play “Faith” this Sunday at 2 p.m. This is apart of their “Wine and Reading Playwright Series.” 
  • 17:19: Poet and author Stephen Kuusisto was born legally blind and was forced to “pass” as sighted until he was 38-years-old. His memoir, “Have Dog, Will Travel: A Poet’s Journey” talks about the early days when he met his first guide dog, Corky.
  • 37:07: Summer can be a time to explore the great outdoors and the various national parks around the country. George Alexander Grant became the first chief photographer for the National Park Service in 1929. We revisited our conversation with two Atlantans — Ren and Helen Davis — who put together a book of George Grant’s photography called “Landscapes for the People.”
