He is the primary author of the book Love to Love You Bradys: The Bizarre Story of the Brady Bunch Variety Show.

Released this fall, the book features never-before-published photos and interviews with the cast, crew, and production staff. Nichelson will be speaking at Milner Library followed by a book signing on October 13, at 2 p.m. WGLT on-air host Laura Kennedy ’86 will moderate the presentation.
