On Out Loud this week, we'll be chatting with Ross Eliot. He's the author of 'Babette:The Many Lives, Two Deaths and Double Kidnapping of Dr. Ellsworth.'

"This book is the story of Ross Eliot's early years in Portland, Oregon when he stumbled upon an unusual living arrangement with an eccentric history professor. In exchange for quarters in her pantry, he served as companion, driver, confidant and occasional medic for the flamboyant and worldly septuagenarian. His account of those times pulls the reader through religious, cultural and historical tales laced with intrigue, felony and mystery." See you on the radio Tuesday, 6 pm, dear listeners!
