Leonard Lopate and Nora Ephron in the WNYC studios in 2010

Nora Ephron was many things – a screenwriter and director, responsible for “Sleepless in Seattle,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail,” and “Julie and Julia.”  She loved writing, and came on the show a number of times over the years for her books I Feel Bad About My Neck, and I Remember Nothing,” as well as for her play, “Love, Loss & What I Wore.”  She was also a very funny, and very generous person, who volunteered to be on the show on the spur of the moment, should a guest cancel.  But she had her priorities: one of the last times we invited her to be a guest, she said that her son was performing in a band that night, and she had to be there.  She died at the age of 71. You can listen to her conversations with Leonard below.
