Advance praise for Sisters! Bonded by Love and Laughter:

"With Alan Zweibel, Adriana Trigiani, Laraine Newman and Stella Parton (to name a few), this is an amazing celebration of the special bond, the love, the laughter, the inimitable closeness of sisters and a tribute to the love, laughter, and closeness of family that Erma Bombeck so brilliantly inhabited. Like sisters themselves, Sisters Bonded by Love and Laughter is a gift." — Amy Ephron, bestselling author
