NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly on work, motherhood and the deadline she couldn't ignore
So many mothers have received 'that call' at work. It's the middle of a meeting or a shift and the school is on the line, telling you your kid is sick. When NPR journalist Mary Louise Kelly got one of those calls she was about to board a Black Hawk helicopter in Baghdad, and her sick child was at home in the U.S. Mary Louise joins guest host Bresnahan to discuss her new memoir, It. Goes So Fast.: The Year of No Do-Overs, about the trade-offs she's faced as a working mother and how she hit pause on her journalism career to cherish the last year her family lived under one roof.
