Remembering Actor and Author Leslie Jordan

Leslie Jordan achieved much success in his too-brief 67 years of life. He won an Emmy for his acclaimed role on the television show “Will and Grace,” and also acted in other television shows, movies, and theater. In addition, he was a playwright, singer, and author. His Instagram videos brought smiles, giggles, and comfort to an unsettled world during the pandemic. His book, an autobiographical essay collection, is called How Y’all Doing? Misadventures and Mischief from a Life Well Lived. The book is available from the Talking Book Program in audio format on BARD: DBC24819.
