Chicago – One of Chicago’s favorite native daughters is Ms. Marilu Henner, who has had a tremendous show business career on stage (the original cast of “Grease”), TV (the unforgettable “Taxi”) and film (“The Man Who Loved Women”). She is also the author of “Total Memory Makeover: Uncover Your Past, Take Charge of Your Future” and the accompanying 2013 desk calendar. As a woman of incomparable depth and talent, Henner has distinguished herself in many arenas.

One of the quirkier revelations about Marilu Henner is that she is one of the very few people in the world with “superior autobiographical memory,” the amazing ability to recall any date in her lifetime. She was profiled with others having that ability on the news show “60 Minutes” in 2010, and released “Total Memory Makeover” in 2012 as a result of teaching practical applications regarding her gift.
