Our friend novelist Elizabeth Spencer will get some serious on-air attention tonight when UNC-TV runs (after a delay of 3 days) the recorded live performance of “Light in the Piazza” the musical based on her novella by the same name (the show suns locally at 8 pm tonight and ran nationally this past Thursday).
