Nationally recognized for her high-profile interviews and coverage of disasters and triumphs that affected millions, four-time Emmy winner Hattie Kauffman candidly shares the experiences that made her into a perceptive newswoman in her best-selling memoir, Falling Into Place: A Memoir of Overcoming. Thinking she had left her ghosts behind, her world came crashing down around her one Autumn day as she was forced to face all she had been running from. These events and what she learned about herself both surprised her and shaped her into the remarkable woman she became. Kauffman spent nearly 22 years with CBS, reporting for many of their top-rated news programs. Before that, she was a special correspondent for ABC’s Good Morning America, and got her start on NBC’s Seattle affiliate, King 5 news. A member of the Nez Perce tribe of Idaho, Kauffman holds the distinction of being the first Native American to file a report on a network news broadcast.
