The Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) is proud to announce that it will host Nia Vardalos, Academy Award-nominated writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, on June 12th, 6:30 – 9:30 PM, at the LAYC Career Academy Public Charter School to discuss her book Instant Mom. The event will include a Q&A with Nia Vardalos, book signing, and a light reception.
Instant Mom is a, “poignant and hilarious true chronicle of trying to become a mother while fielding nosy ‘frenemies’ and Hollywood reporters asking, ‘Any baby news?’ With genuine and frank honesty, she describes how she and husband Ian Gomez eventually found their daughter . . . and what happened next. Vardalos explores innovative ways to conquer the challenges all new moms face, from sleep to personal grooming, and learns that whether via biology, relationship, or adoption—motherhood comes in many forms.” (Amazon.com)
