What happens when we are brave enough to speak our truths to the ones we love the most? Join award-winning actress and activist Laura Dern and her mother, legendary actress Diane Ladd, for a deeply personal conversation on love, art, ambition, and legacy, inspired by her own heart-to-hearts.

“Neither of these women ever takes one moment for granted. They ponder life’s biggest questions fearlessly, always aware of how precious and fleeting our days can be.”  –Reese Witherspoon (from the book’s forward)

During the pandemic, Laura and Diane began walking and were able to break down the traditional barriers between mothers and daughters. They spoke honestly about the moments in their lives that impacted them deeply, and their new book – Honey, Baby, Mine – a compilation of their reflections, taking readers on an intimate tour of their lives and revealing universal lessons.

The two had always been close. But these conversations – about love, sex, marriage, divorce, art, ambition and legacy— drew them even closer. They’ve documented these candid exchanges in an intimate tour of their lives which includes photos, family recipes and other mementos..

Join us to discover what happens when we are brave enough to speak our truths to the ones we love the most.
