National Book Festival

Television news journalist and host Leeza Gibbons has been entering America's living rooms for more than 20 years on programs such as "Entertainment Tonight" and "Leeza," her Emmy Award-winning talk show on NBC. She is host of "Leeza at Night," a nightly five-hour music radio program featuring entertainment news and trends, and "What Should You Do?" a dramatic reality series on Lifetime Television for Women that offers empowering, life-saving information about moments of crisis. Her mother's diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease prompted her to form the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation to educate and inspire others. She has also developed a scrapbooking line, Leeza Gibbons LEGACIES, that provides a system for preserving memories and encourages women to tell stories of their lives. Her recent book "Scrapbooking Traditions" (Meredith, 2005) complements LEGACIES. Gibbons lives in California.
