A conversation with Terry Mutcher about her book, Under this Beautiful Dome


Guest: Terry Mutchler

In her new book, Under this Beautiful Dome, TERRY MUTCHLER recounts her five-year hidden affair with Illinois State Senator Penny Severns, a rising star in the Democratic party. In its telling, the story serves as a reminder of what life was like for gays and lesbians in an era when they were forced to live together in secret and how the fight for same sex marriage legislation has changed the lives of countless couples and families in America. Mutchler, a lawyer and former journalist, is Executive Director of Pennsylvania’s Office of Open Records.
