Books by Hoda Kotb

She's the other half of the fourth hour of the Today show, you know, the one who sits across from Kathie Lee. But Hoda Kotb is much more than that. As a child of two cultures (her parents are Egyptian), Kotb grew up to travel the world to report on groundbreaking events, including Hurricane Katrina, as well as use her own struggle with breast cancer to raise awareness about the disease.
