Larchmont Buzz article by Patty Lombard: Lessons from Our Mothers
“Never sit if you can dance,” that’s one of the lessons author and journalist Jo Giese learned from her mother and shared with members and guests at the Ebell of Los Angeles earlier this week. Giese took the expression as the title of her book, which grew out of conversations with her mother that helped her appreciate the profound impact our mothers have on each of our lives.
Giese said she wrote the book as a gift for her mother and “all mothers everywhere who laid the groundwork that shaped us, even if we didn’t exactly recognize it or appreciate it — or them — at the time.”
