I loved this memoir amidst the backdrop of modern history. So many tears and lol moments… this was a joy, a walk down memory lane, and an eye-opener. When my kids were little, I was a loyal Today Show viewer and, like most who turned to NBC every morning, became a Katie Couric fan. So much was going on behind her bright eyes and in Going There she tells all.
From the meaningful relationship with her father, the devastating loss of her beloved husband, her challenges being a female in a man’s world of tv news broadcasting, to the Matt Lauer scandal, raising her daughters on her own , braving the dating world (she went out with some guys I would have never expected!) and finding love again, Katie Couric was and is more than just what we see on our tv screens. Katie shares her achievements, her grief, her regrets and her love for family amidst the backdrop of so many important memories and universal milestones in our lives in this fast paced book. I highly recommend Katie Couric’s memoir!
Thank you to booktrib.com for publishing my review!
