Laura Fahrenthold: The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles



Laura Fahrenthold talks with Big Blend Radio about her memoir “The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles” and her North American RV travels with her two daughters and a stray dog.

When Bloomberg journalist Mark Pittman suddenly died, his widow spent four summers driving 31,152 miles searching for answers. A former NY Daily News crime reporter, Laura Fahrenthold presents her moving portrait of life told with unflinching honesty about marriage, motherhood and mourning in The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles. Share in her adventures and misadventures, her deeply-layered love story, and her heartbreaking yet often hilarious slice of life dispatches as captain of a 1993 RV as she traverses North America spreading his ashes with their young daughters and a stray dog where the pink steering wheel becomes their spiritual GPS.

The book is not a travelogue. It’s a put-your-heart-back-together memoir/love story with an unexpected ending where they reconnect in eerie, unexpected and surprisingly moving ways.

Laura’s journalism career includes Woman’s World Magazine where she has interviewed more than 60,000 women over the course of 15 years. She has hundreds of bylines and has won several Associated Press writing awards. Her late husband was Mark Pittman, Bloomberg financial reporter and the first person ever to sue the Federal Reserve. When she isn’t working, Laura is mother to her two teenage daughters and serves on the board for the Bereavement Center of Westchester. She resides just outside of New York City. The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles is published by Hatherleigh Press and distributed through Penguin Random House.
