Even with four children, Zibby Owens finds time to nudge women to immerse themselves in books that reflect their lives, explore the issues they care about and allow them to escape. Her award-winning podcast Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books turned her into the mother of all book mavens, or the book maven of all mothers.
Now she’s edited Moms Don’t Have Time To: A Quarantine Anthology, a collection of essays about sex in the time of COVID, working out to stay sane, the perils of tackling the unknown as a perfectionist and, of course, reading to survive the pandemic.
Join Zibby, before she moderates our ongoing Women on the Move series, as she chats about her latest project with Kyle Owens, Tiffany Schlain and Beth Ricanti.
About the series:
