On Saturday, May 9th, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation welcomed Patti Davis for a lecture and book signing for her latest book, The Lives Our Mothers Leave Us: Prominent Women Discuss the Complex, Humorous, and Ultimately Loving Relationships They Have with Their Mothers.

The Lives Our Mothers Leave Us is a compilation book of interviews with more than 20 well-known women about their relationships with their mothers. The book includes the stories of Diahann Carroll, Cokie Roberts, Anne Rice, and Candice Bergen. The book also contains a chapter about Ms. Davis’s relationship with her mother, Nancy Reagan. The book is a cross between a reaffirming self-help book and a candid women’s narrative, with individual daughters’ stories creating a collective memoir. Readers may recognize traces of their own relationships with their mothers as these women recount histories of addiction, sickness and death. Along with memories of friendship, strength and reconciliation.

Ms. Davis is the author of seven books, fiction and non-fiction, including The Long Goodbye. She has written for Time Magazine, Newsweek, Ladies Home Journal, Glamour, More, HarperVs Bazaar, Redbook, Sunset, and L.A. Confidential. She has also contributed to The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
