HistoryChiQ meets The Receptionist

  Broadcast in Entertainment

Call in to speak with the host

If you're missing Mad Men already, join us on our talk  with Janet Groth, author of The Receptionist: An Education at The New Yorker (Algonquin), about her days in the heyday of the iconic magazine and the behind-the-scene's POV of the chemistry, camaraderie and shenanigans from a Joan-esque (actually she looked more like Scarlett Johannson) character -- in real life -- during the 1960s & '70s.

"An honest and engaging memoir for fans of the magazine and histories of Mad Men-era New York."—Library Journal

 Producer: Robert Gonyo
