The popular anchor for NBC’s ”Today” Show, Hoda Kotb, shares her life story in a revealing, fascinating, behind-the-scenes new book, ”Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer, and Kathie Lee.” With humor and grace, she shows how we all have the capacity to turn a crisis into a blessing, and the lessons she has learned, from growing up with immigrant Egyptian parents to reporting from dangerous war zones all over the world, from surviving breast cancer to getting along with her ”Today” show colleagues. Hoda Kotb has been co-anchor of the fourth hour of ”Today” since 2007. She has been a ”Dateline NBC” correspondent since 1998 and hosts the weekly series ”Your Total Health.” She is a winner of the prestigious Peabody Award and a four-time Emmy nominee and also received the 2002 Edward R. Murrow Award for her reporting. Copies of her book will be available for sale at signing at this event. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
