Jack Zimmerman Guest Stars in Prairie Home Companion

The affable and avuncular Jack Zimmerman, a former newspaperman and PR guy first at Ravinia and then at the Lyric Opera , will be a guest on A Prairie Home Companion, which will be broadcast live from Ravinia at 5 p.m. Saturday nationally (WBEZ in Chicago). Jack will read from “The Gift,” a CD of six of his stories interlaced with original music by his jazz musician son, Andrew Zimmerman. He will do a CD-signing following the performance.
