Lesley Stahl

Wednesday, April 26| Arizona Biltmore

Lesley Stahl’s career has been marked by political scoops, surprising features and award-winning reporting. She has been a 60 Minutes correspondent for over 25 years. After four decades as a reporter, Lesley Stahl’s most vivid and transformative experience of her life was not covering the White House, interviewing heads of state, or researching stories at 60 Minutes. It was becoming a grandmother. Along with personal accounts, Stahl speaks with scientists and doctors about physiological changes that occur in women when they have grandchildren; anthropologists about why there are grandmothers, in evolutionary terms; and psychiatrists about the therapeutic effects of grandchildren on both grandmothers and grandfathers.
