The schedules of today's "modern women" have never been fuller -- and their commitments have never been so numerous. Why then, does an eminent sociologist claim that they currently "enjoy 30 hours of leisure each week"? Washington Post journalist Brigid Schulte was determined to investigate this audacious claim and the obvious truth it seemed to refute: that few adults had spare minutes, much less hours, for relaxation. The fruit of her thorough research is a new book, Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time. Praised by critics, Overwhelmed identifies the stresses that cut into working parents' leisure time, even as it seeks to find a better work-life balance. Schulte discusses her fascinating conclusions with Tom Bowman, her husband and also the National Desk reporter for NPR, at Sixth & I. Books will be available for sale at the event. Learn More

I am one of those who does not understand the US's unabridged support for Isreal. It was interesting to hear that ther is some internal examination underway...perhaps. I feel that it is like many white Americans who say they are Christians, but only for other white Christians--nor brotherly love for anyone else. This dichotomy between occupation and democracy--is it vetted internally? It was a lot of information at once. This is the first time I have taken the initiative to learn more. Thank you for the franklness.
