"Your father is the glitter, and I am the glue." That's what Kelly Corrigan's mother used to tell her about her mother's ability to keep the family together. In her new memoir, "Glitter and Glue," Corrigan reflects on her complicated relationship with her mother, and what she learned about motherhood when she was a live-in nanny for a widower in Australia, and when she eventually had her own children.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Kelly Corrigan, author of "Glitter and Glue: A Memoir," "The Middle Place" and "Lift;" and creator of Notes and Words, a benefit for Children's Hospital Oakland
