Monday Lunch: Author Jo Giese Shares a Mother’s Wit and Wisdom

Join us as Jo Giese presents her upcoming memoir, Never Sit If You Can Dance: Lessons from My Mother.  This memoir explores a turbulent time in America, when personal connections are fleeting and shared values are rare. Jo Giese offers uplifting lessons in old-fashioned civility. These heartfelt lessons are wisdom from a mother of the 20th century for a daughter in the 21st century.

Jo Giese is an award-winning radio journalist, author, teacher, community activist, and former TV reporter. She has written for such publications as The New York Times, LA Times, and Vogue. Giese was part of the Peabody Award-winning team at Marketplace, the popular public radio business show.
