Talk: Becoming Grandma

Lesley Stahl stops by the Googleplex for a conversation about her life in journalism and her new book, "Becoming Grandma: the Joys and Science of New Grandparenting." 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. She was hit with a jolt of joy so intense and unexpected, she wanted to “investigate” it—as though it were a news flash.
