By June 22, 2015 0 1301•
Connie Lawn signed copies of her updated autobiography, “You Wake Me Each Morning: The Final Chapter,” at the National Press Club May 21. The title comes from international listeners to her radio broadcasts. Nelson Mandela told her during a Washington news conference, “You gave my people hope.” The book follows Lawn’s career as a White House reporter since 1968 and the struggles of her one-woman news bureau. Lawn has received multiple honors, including the Life Time Achievement Award from New Zealand’s National Press Club.
