Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy formally announced his plans not to run in the 2018 election at a news conference Thursday afternoon at the state Capitol.

“Serving as Connecticut’s 88th governor is the honor of a lifetime, second only to being a father and a husband,” said Malloy. “And it will continue to be an honor to work as hard as I can. I will give you one guarantee: no governor’s ever going to outwork me.”

Connecticut lawmakers and advocates say not enough people know about the state’s Safe Haven laws – especially teenagers. These concerns come after an infant's body was discovered last week inside a bag in a reservoir.

Patricia Bosworth knows how to tell a story. Bosworth is a writer and an actress. She was featured in the film A Nun’s Story with Audrey Hepburn. She’s also written biographies of photographer Diane Arbus and actors Montgomery Clift, Jane Fonda and Marlon Brando.   

But she waited decades to tell the story of the men in her life. Those men are her brother, Bart Jr., and her father, lawyer Bartley Crum. Crum was famous for defending the Hollywood 10 during the McCarthy era.    

In her new memoir, The Men in Her Life, Bosworth writes about her relationship with them and how the loss of these family members shaped her life. Bosworth recently spoke with All Things Considered Host Bill Buchner about the book. Below is a transcript of their conversation.
