‘LA Law’ couple to discuss ‘Living in a Foreign Language’

If you liked “Under the Tuscan Sun,” you’ll love hearing the adventures of “LA Law” stars Michael Tucker and Jill Eickenberry today at noon at the Commonwealth Club.

The real-life married couple, who also played a couple on the hit TV show, fell in love with the Umbrian countryside, built a small cottage there and then did what most people in Holly wood do – they wrote a book about it.

Now they are traveling again, this time to promote their book.

“Living in a Foreign Language: A Memoir of Food, Wine, and Love in Italy” continues Tucker’s memoir/cookbook tradition.

He also wrote “I Never Forget a Meal” and does a cooking segment in a new biographical song-and-dance show. For that, he often shares a few tasty morsels with the audience.
No food-tasting plans have been revealed for today’s event, but the couple will definitely sign a book for you.
