Roberts will also be signing copies of her New York Times bestselling book Lessons Learned and Cherished at the Summit. The star-studded collection of essays features celebrity friends and colleagues alike that share how teachers changed them, imparted life lessons, and helped them get to where they are today.
A media veteran, Roberts has traveled the world for her reporting. She joined ABC News in 1995, recruited by Barbara Walters, and has served as a substitute anchor for “Good Morning America,” “World News Weekend” and “20/20,” as well as a guest co-host on “The View.”
In 2021, Roberts was awarded a Peabody Award for the “20/20” special “Say Her Name: Breonna Taylor,” which featured her extensive reporting on Taylor’s tragic death. Roberts, who was inducted into the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame in May, has been awarded multiple Emmy® Awards for her national and international coverage of world events, including the AIDS crisis in Africa and maternal mortality in Bangladesh.
