We’ve had a lot of fun diving into the world of soapy books the past two months, and we can’t wait for more. Your fan-voted July pick is sure to bring the drama!
Soap Hub Book Club: Autobiography By Kim Zimmer
You’ve spoken and we’ve listened. The July selection is (drum roll…) I’m Just Sayin’!: Three Deaths, Seven Husbands, and a Clone! My Life on Guiding Light and Beyond! by acclaimed daytime star Kim Zimmer! Fans will remember Kim as the feisty and fiery Reva Shayne on Guiding Light where she stole hearts (and lovers). The role garnered four Daytime Emmy wins for the actress and even more nominations.
We can’t wait to take a deep dive into her life on and off the screen and meet with all of you to discuss.
About The Book
As the notorious Reva Shayne on the daytime television drama Guiding Light, Kim Zimmer portrayed a vixen, a manic-depressive, an Amish woman, a time traveler, a Civil War belle, a talk show host, a cancer survivor, a loving mother, and a devoted wife. In her more than two decades on the show, she earned 11 Daytime Emmy nominations and four wins, not to mention a legion of loving fans. Now, in this heartfelt memoir, Zimmer delves into her experiences as a daytime diva.
Packed with on- and off-set photographs and behind-the-scenes information, blatantly honest and wildly indiscreet, I’m Just Sayin’ tells all in an insightful journey through the parallel lives of Reva Shayne and Kim Zimmer—and the true stories behind the longest-running drama in television and radio history.
