The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Rico Racosky will interview Celebrity Joan Benedict Steiger  Author of BROOKLYN BABY.

Steiger. The name conjures images of Rod Steiger, Academy Award Best Actor-winner for his role as a bigoted police chief in In the Heat of the Night(1967), but the woman behind the man was Joan. They were married until his death in 2002. She lost the man she loved, but she maintained a contagiously upbeat and positive outlook throughout the rest of her life.

Joan’s life reverberated as a star in her own right. Best-known for her role as Edith Fairchild on General Hospital (1963), her credits included appearances in films, on stage, and in television roles, including work on Butterfield 8 (1960), The Bob Newhart Show (1972), Candid Camera (1960), Fantasy Island(1977), Get Smart (1965), Love American Style (1969), Hogan's Heroes (1965), and The Steve Allen Show (1951).
