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.

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 10th, 2017.

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).
