It was a meeting that was destined to happen. The Daily Caller's Laura Donovan reports that “Tiger Mother” Amy Chua and “Mama Grizzly” Sarah Palin met at Saturday’s Vanity Fair/Bloomberg White House Correspondents’ Dinner after-party:
“Sarah Palin @SarahPalinUSA dropped by Vanity Fair party and we talked about tiger and grizzly momming..she was really nice!” Chua tweeted on Sunday.Both women are successful authors. Gov. Palin's memoir Going Rogue: An American Life has sold nearly 3 million copies. Yale law professor Chua's book is still doing well at #22 on the New York Times best seller list.
Chua, author of the New York Times bestselling book, “The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” told The Daily Caller that she chatted with Palin about the struggles of parenting.
“We didn’t talk about anything political, but basically ran smack into each other and both said ‘Tiger Mom!’ ‘Grizzly Mom’ and laughed,” Chua told TheDC. “Then we exchanged some supportive words about the tough job of parenting.”
