In 2004 Oprah Winfrey surprised Paolo Presta at his father's grocery store and gave the aspiring actor an even bigger surprise: a speaking role on the hit TV show Will & Grace. The experience changed Paolo's life - and saw Paolo experience big life changes. Learn about Paolo's journey to authenticity as he joins Shaun in conversation; how he went from being engaged to a woman to acknowledging he's gay; how he navigated the tricky waters of disappointing his parents with his career choice; and how he's living his dream with his own online talk show - even interviewing Oprah herself.
Paolo comes from a large Italian family in Chicago, IL. His parents came to America from a small town in southern Italy to start a family and chase the American dream. Through hard work and dedication, Paolo's father was able to open his first grocery store. His dream was to have all seven of his children working in the family business and they all were - including Paolo. Starting at the age of eleven, Paolo would go to work with his father on the weekends, but he always knew it wasn't his passion. Paolo didn't want to disappoint his father, but somehow needed to let him know that his dream was to be a part of the entertainment business in Hollywood. For years, Paolo wrote to "The Oprah Winfrey Show" asking Oprah to help him fulfill that dream. Finally, in November of 2004, Oprah Winfrey surprised Paolo at his father's store and gave him a speaking role on NBC's "Will & Grace". That was one of the greatest days of his life and that one single day changed the direction of Paolo's life forever! Since then, he has moved to Los Angeles where he transitioned from acting (he had a recurring role on ABC's "General Hospital") to working behind the scenes in the world of daytime talk shows ("The Ellen DeGeneres Show" & "The Talk"). All of those experiences brought Paolo to fulfill his greatest life-long dream of hosting his own talk show. "A Spoonful of Paolo" is truly a labor of love for him and he hopes you sit back, eat a cookie and enjoy the show!
How do you have to think unconventionally to write great stories for children? Join us as children's book author Bruce Coville talks about extraterrestrials and other oddities for kids.
Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse, New York, in 1950. His family lived in farm territory north of Syracuse and he grew up around the corner from his grandparents’ dairy farm, where he spent a great deal of time dodging cows and chores as well as he was able. As a young reader he loved Mary Poppins and Dr. Dolittle, but also read lots of things people consider junk (Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Tom Swift, and zillions of comic books).
In 1978 he published his first book, The Foolish Giant, a picture book illustrated by his wife, Katherine. Since then he has published over 100 books for children and young adults, from picture books to young adult novels. Among his best known titles are My Teacher Is an Alien, Into the Land of the Unicorns, and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. His work has appeared in 16 languages, and won children's choice awards in numerous states.
A frequent speaker at schools and conferences, Bruce has 3 times been opening or closing keynoter for the national conference of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. He travels the world to speak in schools, and has presented at American or International Schools in Sao Paolo, London, Madrid, Shanghai, Delhi, Seoul, and many others.
In addition to his writing, in 2001 Bruce founded FULL CAST AUDIO, an audiobook publishing company devoted to producing full cast, unabridged recordings of great children's books. He has produced over a hundred audiobooks, frequently also directing or performing.
Bruce lives in Syracuse, New York, with his wife, author and illustrator Katherine Coville.
