During the global pandemic, acclaimed actress Laura Dern (Big Little Lies, Twin Peaks, Jurassic Park) and legendary talent Diane Ladd (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Chinatown) began taking long walks together. The mother and daughter had appeared alongside one another in Rambling Rose and David Lynch’s Wild At Heart, and their relationship deepened as they were able to break down the traditional barriers between parent and child, speaking honestly about moments that profoundly impacted them. Their new book, Honey, Baby, Mine, is a compilation of their intimate reflections, including photos, family recipes, and other mementos.
Cheryl Strayed is the author of Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, which was made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Laura Dern. Her bestselling book of Dear Sugar columns, Tiny Beautiful Things, was adapted for television and will be released in April 2023.
Tickets include a copy of Honey, Baby, Mine.
