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 love Daniel Silva's books, so it was great to find out that he has an engaging personality and tells good stories in real life. His wife did a great job of asking probing questions and forcing him to admit to some of his quirks while writing a book.
Quotes & Highlights
- Gabriel Allon was once hailed by Former President Bill Clinton as his "favorite fictional character."
The #1 New York Times bestselling author is back with his much-anticipated 16th novel, The English Girl, which sends Silva’s recurring character, Gabriel Allon*, on another adventure.
In The English Girl, when Madeline Hart vanishes on the island of Corsica, Gabriel is thrust into a deadly game of shadows where nothing is what it seems—and where the only thing more dangerous than his enemies might be the truth.
Hart, a rising star in Britain’s governing party, is also a woman with a dark secret; she is the lover of the Prime Minister. Her kidnappers know of the affair and intend to make the British leader pay for his sins. Fearful of scandal that will destroy his career, the Prime Minister decides to handle the matter privately rather than involve the police.
