This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Erin McHugh. The original live interview was 4/04/14
During an afternoon of coffee and conversation, a friend of Erin McHugh’s pointed out that she frequently invoked quotations and memories from her mother. Then Erin started noticing how many other people did the same. It also became clear how humorous, moving, and unusual these gems were—so she decided to do something about it.
In Like My Mother Always Said, McHugh, author of the successful Abrams Image feel-good title One Good Deed, collects the wonderful and laugh-worthy words that our moms tell us in their attempts to be helpful and instructive. (Whether they succeed or not is another thing entirely!)
Erin McHugh is a former publishing executive and award-winning author of more than twenty books of popular nonfiction, including trivia, gay history, children’s books, and much more. She lives in New York City and South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.
