Lesley Stahl – 2020 Author’s Luncheon
Friday, March 13, 2020
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
The Gasparilla Inn
The Library Foundation is honored to host our 2020 Author’s Luncheon. Our featured speaker is the inimitable journalist, Lesley Stahl. Ms. Stahl’s presence in the national media is legendary. She has worked at CBS News since 1972 when she covered the Watergate scandal, during the Nixon Administration.
She was the CBS White House Correspondent during the presidencies of Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. From 1972-91 she also moderated “Face the Nation” on Sunday mornings. She has been at 60 Minutes since 1991. While there, she has authored two books: Reporting Live and Becoming Grandma.
In her book, Becoming Grandma: The Joys and Science of the New Grandparenting, Ms. Stahl writes about the transformative experience of being a grandmother. She approaches the subject in both a personal and a journalistic manner. The theme is timely because a vast number of baby boomers are now becoming grandparents. The grandparents of today are different than those of past generations. Ms. Stahl tells this story through personal interviews with friends, discussions with professionals and by relating her own experience.
The Author’s Luncheon will take place on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 11:30 am at The Gasparilla Inn.
