A Celebration of Friendship
A Satellite Sister is a sounding board for your wacky career plans, a guaranteed New Year's Eve date, someone who’s seen you in your glasses. A Satellite Sister brings information, perspective and balance to your life when you are lacking all three. A Satellite Sister is the person who gets you through, makes you laugh, and, every once in awhile, changes your mind.
Los Angeles, CA - (Wednesday, November 18, 2015) Join Alliance for Women in Media Southern California (AWM SoCal) Wednesday, December 9th from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Fox Studios Commissary for an evening with the award-winning Satellite Sisters to talk about their latest book, You’re the Best: A Celebration of Friendship, followed by a book signing and holiday party with refreshments and no-host bar. Tickets can be purchased at awmsocal.org/events.
The Dolan sisters (Julie, Liz, Sheila, Monica, and Lian) created the Satellite Sisters first as a radio show and website in 2000 and then became podcast pioneers with a devoted national fan base as well as best-selling authors. Together they have won 13 Gracie Awards for excellence in women’s media, including Talk Show of the Year and have appeared on CBS Sunday Morning and had a regular column in O Magazine for several years. Their latest project, You’re the Best is a collection of writings about how we rely on our friends to get us up, get us going, get us through and, most importantly, make us laugh.
“We are excited to welcome sisters Liz and Lian Dolan for our annual holiday celebration,” says Samantha Brown, AWM SoCal President. “They personify AWM’s mission and the important role that friendship plays in both our personal and professional lives. The Dolan sisters will be sharing some of their inspirational stories with us and signing copies of their new book - a collection of essays and writings about Life, Love, Family, Play, and Change.”
You’re The Best includes the voices of the Satellite Sisters and the Next Generation, spanning ages 15 to 60, and covering how friendships influence choices, relationships, careers, adventures and inevitable changes.
The evening will kick-off with a 30-minute discussion including the sisterhood:
Liz Dolan - is the Chief Marketing Officer for Fox International Channels in Los Angeles.
Lian Dolan - is a best-selling writer and broadcaster.
You’re the Best is the perfect holiday gift for childhood BFFs, your college roommates, your running group, your book club, your PTA friends or your actual sisters – for anyone you want to tell, “You’re the best.”
