Jo Giese presents her upcoming memoir, Never Sit If You Can Dance: Lessons from My Mother

Buy it on IndieBound.org
This Mother’s Day, Giese’s book invites us to remember the lessons we learned from our mothers. With lessons ranging from “flowers never go out of style’ to ‘don’t be drab’ and ‘we all need someone waiting for us in the parking lot’” Never Sit If You Can Dance is a light-filled and universal tribute to love that will ring true with mothers, daughters, and their families in a time when we all need some old-fashioned civility in our lives.
