John Lithgow was an Academy Award nominee for best supporting actor for his roles in The World According to Garp and Terms of Endearment. He’s also a familiar face on TV (“3rd Rock”) and Broadway (“Sweet Smell of Success.”)
What you might not know is that he is also a very good writer who has published both children’s books and volumes of poetry.
My wife, the poet Patricia Smith, photographed him at The National Book Awards, which he hosted.
