SCENE asked Sharon Bajer what's on her reading pile:
When I was preparing for my role in RMTC's August: Osage County, all of my reading time was consumed with research material, all of it fascinating - how to plan a funeral, side effects of drugs, the poems of TS Eliot, The Greatest Generation, how to cope with the suicide of a parent, the affects on children of addicts, Eric Clapton lyrics, the history of Osage County, Cheyanne culture, mouth Cancer treatments, green bean casserole recipes and much more.
