It’s A Wrap For Listen To Your Mother 2015!

by Stephanie P. on May 12, 2015

Listen To Your Mother gave motherhood a microphone in 23 cities this past weekend – our biggest weekend ever! – to bring the 2015 season to a final bow.

Thursday night lights went up and audiences were enamored.

“I’ve recently fallen in love with the Listen To Your Mother world. Simply remarkable…” – Emily Ann Landon

And on Sunday, Mother’s Day, the LTYM 2015 curtain came to a final close in Madison and Spokane.

“… I loved this night because of the connection brought by authors unafraid to be brutally honest. I loved that I could share this with my mom and it could encourage us to live with that same honesty. Let us love one another.” – Joni Elizabeth

Even though we now say goodbye to the stage, there’s more LTYM to come! We can’t wait to share about our charitable giving for 2015 and the videos of our shows coming later this summer on our YouTube Channel. There’s also the pages of our book Listen To Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now– a must-read for all lovers of LTYM and honest, open-hearted, hilarious, and real stories.

Thank you to LTYM’s National Sponsors BlogHer and Luvs, and to the hundreds of local sponsors who helped bring Listen To Your Mother shows to 39 cities across the country this year.

And our DEEPEST AND LOUDEST THANK YOUS to YOU for coming to the show!
