Conversation with Adair Lara

by Donne Davis on April 17, 2009

On Sunday, May 3, 2009 Adair Lara will be the guest speaker at our GaGa Sisterhood meeting in San Francisco. I’ve been looking forward to meeting Adair since I read The Granny Diaries last December.  Adair has a fabulous sense of humor and a great ear for dialogue. Her wry irreverence captured so many of my own experiences – especially her perspective as the maternal grandmother. Her observations are thoughtful, poignant and humorous. She shares her own feelings with such honesty you’ll want to finish her book in one sitting.

adair laraAdair honed her humor at the SF Chronicle, where she wrote a twice-weekly column for 12 years. She’s also published ten books and currently teaches classes on writing essays, humor and memoir in her San Francisco Victorian home.

All grandmothers are welcome to attend this meeting from 2 to 4 pm. We’ll be meeting at the home of one of our members. For more information and details of the location, please send an email to: [email protected]

The GaGa Sisterhood is a social network for energetic, enthusiastic, caring grandmothers who:

  • Indulge in the joy of being grandmas.
  • Share creative ways to connect with our grandchildren.
  • Explore what it means to be a grandma today.

We’ve been meeting for six years in the San Francisco Bay Area to share our wisdom and resources in ways that enrich our family life.

The Granny Diaries will be available for sale at this meeting. Bring a check for $12.95 or cash if you’d like to purchase a signed copy.

We’ll have a chance to learn more about how Adair’s book evolved and share some of our own feelings about being a grandma today.

I’m a huge fan of The Granny Diaries. I’m a few thousand miles away so can’t come to the meeting, but tell Adair Lara that she needs to write more books about grandmothering as her grandchild gets older. It’s so rare to find a book about grandparenting that shows a sense of humor as well as containing some good tips.
