her two daughters and husband on a journey of passion and humility to India and Nepal. Recipient of the Independent Publisher Award for Travel, her book The Buddha Sat Right Here, a Family Odyssey through India and Nepal is travel writing at its best, along with being an intimate story of the love and challenge Dena and her remarkable family experienced. Moes is a midwife in Chico, California and has won awards for her online blog The Midwife’s Desk and continues her path as a Seeker. Dena Moes joins Suzanne M. Lang in conversation.

Suzanne also talks with author and award-winning radio journalist, Jo Giese, on her memoir of Mom, Never Sit if You Can Dance, Lessons from My Mother. Her Mom, whom everyone called “Babe” was witty and colorful —in every sense, and Jo has fun remembering Babe and their relationship over the years.
