Learn how to “Be a Go-to Grandparent Whether You’re Near or Far,” with Donne Davis, founder of the GaGa Sisterhood, a social network “where grandmas bond, brag, and benefit,” on Saturday, November 6, 2010 at 11:oo am.
The mission of the GaGa Sisterhood is to:
• Explore what it means to be a grandma today—both the joys and challenges.
• Share wisdom and resources that enrich our family life.
• Inspire each other with creative ways to stay connected with our grandchildren
Davis writes about these issues in her blog, a monthly magazine, and in a monthly newspaper column “The Go-To Grandma” in Parenting on the Peninsula. She is also a contributor to a new anthology, The Art of Grandparenting — a funny, touching, informative collection of essays, stories, and tips by 20 grandparent authors. In her chapter, “How to Become a Go-To Grandma,” she offers seven strategies for developing lifelong meaningful relationships with your children and grandchildren.
The program is supported by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. It will be held at the Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma Street, in the downstairs meeting room. Free van service to the program is available for Menlo Park seniors and people with disabilities. For more information or to schedule transportation, call 330-2512 or contact Roberta Roth, Outreach Librarian, rlroth[at]menlopark.org.
