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 just want to say what a great time I had. Terry McMillan is a wonderful and straight forward person with a great personality. The location and the atmosphere was great. This was my first authors' reading and Q&A and I really enjoyed. I am apprieciative for Goldstar bringing this event to my attention, because I would have never knew of this event. Thanks
