Diane Kruger is an actress, model and former ballet dancer–and now she can also add author to her list of credits, with the release of her new children’s book “A Name from the Sky” which weaves together her own childhood story with that of her young daughter, Nova.

In this episode, Diane talks to Liz about what storytelling and literature have meant to her throughout her life, and what she’s learned from being trilingual–and why she wants language to empower her daughter in the same way. She also reflects on being a mother in Hollywood as well as her experience raising her daughter with her partner Norman Reedus partly in Europe–and what it has taught her about ways that we could better support mothers in the US.
