From one of the country’s most recognizable journalists: How becoming a grandmother transforms a woman’s life. Author Leslie Stahl discusses her book Becoming Grandma. After four decades as a reporter, Stahl says the most vivid and transforming experience of her life was not covering the White House, interviewing heads of state, or any other of her stories at 60 Minutes. It was becoming a grandmother. She was hit with a jolt of joy so intense and unexpected, she wanted to “investigate” it—as though it was a news flash! And so, using her 60 Minutes skills, she explores how grandmothering changes a woman’s life, interviewing her friends like Whoopi Goldberg, her colleagues like Diane Sawyer, and the proverbial woman next door. Q&A and book signing following the program. Doors open 1:30pm, program starts at 2pm.
