A Girls Night! 
Kate Siegel & Kim Friedman, Mother, Can You Not?

Alper JCC | 11155 SW 112 Avenue • Robert Russell Theater
Admission $10 • Author presentation, and refreshments

There is nothing more wonderful than a mother’s love. There is also nothing more annoying. In Mother, Can You Not?, Siegel pays tribute to the woman who invented the concept of drone parenting. From embarrassing moments to outrageous stories, the book lovingly lampoons the lengths to which mothers go to better their children’s lives–even when it feels like they are ruining them in the process. Kate Siegel is a social media guru behind the Instagram account @CrazyJewishMom, and her mother Kim Friedman is an Emmy-nominated director of Beverly Hills 90210, L.A. Law and Dynasty.

The New York Times Bestseller, from one of the country’s most recognizable journalists: How becoming a grandmother transforms a woman’s life. After four decades as a reporter, Lesley Stahl’s most vivid and transformative experience of her life was not covering the White House, interviewing heads of state, or researching 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 were a news flash. And so, using her 60 Minutes skills, she explored how grandmothering changes a woman’s life, interviewing friends like Whoopi Goldberg, colleagues like Diane Sawyer (and grandfathers, including Tom Brokaw), as well as the proverbial woman next door.
