Becoming A Grandparent

Apr 2, 2013

What does it feel like to become a grandparent? There’s the initial excitement of the moment, but it’s something that changes your whole life.

In the first part of Wednesday's Up to Date, we’ll talk with author Anne Lamott, who chronicled her journey of how she adjusted to thinking of her son as a parent himself in Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son's First Son.

HEAR MORE: Anne Lamott will speak at 7 p.m. April 4 at Community Christian Church, 4601 Main St., Kansas City, Mo. For tickets, call Rainy day Books at (913) 384-3126.
