Description
Pearls of Wisdom from Grandma is a book that is as full of life, love, and wisdom as the grandmothers revered in these pages. Actors, musicians, authors, political leaders, journalists, fashion designers, and other prominent cultural figures have come together to share stories, quotes, and reminiscences that celebrate the humor, courage, compassion, and insight they received from their own grandmothers. With a collection of original material from both celebrities and noncelebrities, including introduction from actress Demi Moore about her beloved grandmother; meaningful family photos; and poetry, historical anecdotes, and essays, Pearls of Wisdom from Grandma honors the rich relationship between grandchild and grandmother, a bond that transcends time and culture. The stories included in this inspiring collection cast a spotlight on a diverse group of women who are vividly remembered by their grandchildren: Maria Shriver's memory of Rose Kennedy teaching her to treat everyone with the utmost respect; Dan Rather's recollection of Bible stories read to him by his Grandma Page; Josephine Baker's devotion to her adoptive grandmother, who had been a slave on a tobacco plantation; Fran Drescher's loving account of Yetta, the real person behind the humorous character on her television show; and other treasured memories that run the gamut from deeply insightful to hysterically bawdy.
