Spend 60 Minutes with Lesley Stahl

Lesley Stahl, Correspondent, "60 Minutes"; Author, Being Grandma: The Joys and Science of the New Grandparenting; Twitter: @LesleyRStahl 
In conversation with Judge LaDoris Cordell (ret.), Chair, Santa Clara County Jail Commission

This event is part of our Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

Lesley Stahl stands as an icon in the field of broadcast journalism. In 25 years as a “60 Minutes” correspondent, and prior to that as CBS News White House correspondent, she has interviewed the likes of Margaret Thatcher, Boris Yeltsin, Yasir Arafat, and virtually every top U.S. official. Here’s a rare chance to hear Lesley Stahl unedited—on politics, media, the challenges facing women, and her own personal rise to success.  She’ll also discuss what she says is her most transformative life experience: becoming a grandmother. Ms. Stahl says the therapeutic effects of grandchildren on grandparents and families in general are eye-opening.

In her professional life, Lesley Stahl covered Watergate, the assassination attempt on President Reagan, and the 1991 Gulf War. Her “60 Minutes” pieces have encompassed terrorist capabilities to hack the U.S. infrastructure, a profile of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, an inside look at Guantamo Bay Prison, and China’s huge real estate bubble.

These stories and your questions … in our 60 Minutes with Lesley Stahl.
