BOOK REVIEWS

"The Mighty Spartan was a delightful memoir to read - I enjoyed especially the chapter on the filming on "In The Heat of the Night". I was a young nurse working 3 - 11 at Sparta Hospital. A group of co-workers would come "down town" after work to watch Sidney Portier and Rod Steiger on the streets of Sparta! Good job. Thank you sharing the memories."
