     "Regardless of how much money you have, your race, where you live, what religion you follow, you are going through something. Or you already have or you will. As momma always said, "Everybody's got something."

                                                            --Robin Roberts


Join Robin Roberts, award-winning broadcaster and co-host of ABC's Good Morning America, for a special WSHU Public Radio "Join the Conversation" event on Sunday, May 4th at 3pm at Sacred Heart University's Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts.  She will discuss her inspirational new memoir EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING with WTNH News 8 anchor Ann Nyberg.


In her book, Roberts recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way.  She shares her stories of overcoming breast cancer only to learn five years later that she would need a bone marrow transplant to combat a rare blood disorder; the grief and heartbreak she suffered when her mother passed away; her triumphant return to Good Morning America; and the tremendous support she received from her family and friends.         


Roberts taught a nation of viewers that while it's true that we've all got something-a medical crisis, aging parents to care for, and heartbreak of all kinds-we still have something to give, be it hope, encouragement, a life-saving transplant, or simply a spirit-saving embrace.                


Under her leadership, GMA has won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Morning program. Prior to that, Roberts was a contributor to ESPN. She is a native of the Mississippi Gulf Coast and currently resides in New York City and Connecticut.
