“Neither of these women ever takes one moment for granted. They ponder life’s biggest questions fearlessly, always aware of how precious and fleeting our days can be.” – Reese Witherspoon

What happens when we are brave enough to speak our truths to the ones we love the most?

Join award-winning actress and activist Laura Dern and her mother, legendary actress Diane Ladd, for a deeply personal conversation on love, art, ambition, and legacy, inspired by her own heart-to-hearts.

During the pandemic, Laura and Diane began walking and were able to break down the traditional barriers between mothers and daughters. They spoke honestly about the moments in their lives that impacted them deeply, and their new book – Honey, Baby, Mine – a compilation of their reflections, taking readers on an intimate tour of their lives and revealing universal lessons.

These moderated conversations with Laura and Diane will be a celebration of the power of leaving nothing unsaid, and will make you want to call the people you love the most and start talking.

Tickets to this event include access to a moderated conversation with Laura and Diane and a signed copy of Honey, Baby, Mine.
