Every year on December 1,
countries around the world commemorate World AIDS

In the greater Sacramento area, over 5,000 people are
infected with the disease, 1,000 of which do not even know. Emily

Research, Education & Services
(CARES), joins us to share
her experiences with treating HIV positive patients.

, the name "Jack Reacher" might be more familiar. Jack is
Lee's character in a series of novels, and will be played by Tom

SacramentoThursday for the Bee Book Club
, and we'll
talk with him in our studio before his evening event.
Fifty years ago, 12-year old
Thornton Percival's face was made famous in prints by Norman
Rockwell, who used him as a model for a series of Boy Scouts
illustrations. The not-so-well known part of the story: He

today, along with the museum's Rika Nelson and Lial Jones, to
discuss the part he played in the Norman Rockwell legacy.
