CHICAGO – You know her as a hard-charging reporter on CBS-TV, and their fabled magazine show ’60 Minutes.’ But Lesley Stahl also is a grandmother, and has just written a new book called ‘Becoming Grandma: The Joys and Science of the New Grandparenting.” She recently appeared on behalf of the book at Anderson’s Book Shop in Naperville, Ill.

Stahl had majored in history when she graduated from Wheaton College in Massachusetts. She began her career in Boston in 1971, and was hired by CBS a year later, along with Bernard Shaw and Connie Chung, in what was known at the time as “affirmative action” moves by the network. She cut her teeth during the Watergate era, and was White House correspondent under Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. She also moderated “Face the Nation,” and joined “60 Minutes” in 1991. Her first book was entitled “Reporting Live” (1999). “Becoming Grandma” is her second effort.

Photographer Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com was at Anderson’s Book Shop on April 7th, 2017 – where Lesley Stahl greeted admirers and signed books – and took this Exclusive Portrait.

“Becoming Grandma: The Joys and Science of the New Grandparenting” is available at Anderson’s Book Shop and wherever books are sold.

  • Not One Batu

Because of its reputation as a tourist mecca, the fact that native peoples live and work there like any other place is hard to imagine. Also unimaginable is the drug use of island residents, but playwright and Hawaiian native Hannah li-Epstein wrote about it in her stage play “Not One Batu,” now in its Premiere Chicago run at the Berger Park Coach House through July 28th, 2018.
