Paola Gianturco is a captivating speaker. And the message she brings about groups of grandmothers around the world working to make their communities better places is inspirational. We had the great opportunity to hear her speak last evening in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She introduced grandmothers (and grandothers and the rest of us too!) to some of the women in the 17 groups on 5 continents that she visited in writing her book.
