Women's Philanthropy hosts a virtual evening with Zibby Owens

In Moms Don’t Have Time to Have Kids: A Timeless Anthology, award-winning podcast host Zibby Owens curates 53 essays by 49 authors to help us all feel understood, inspired, and less alone. 

Join Zibby, in discussion with our very own Robyn Morrison, as she shares highlights of these dazzling essays about the many things moms don't have time to do (sleep, socialize, get sick, write, lose weight) in a new timeless collection that can be read in short bursts or all at once. Topics range from taking care of an aging grandmother, mourning the loss of a family member, battling insomnia, wrestling with body image, coping with chronic illness, navigating writer's block, the power of women's friendship, and more!

Named “NYC’s Most Powerful Book-fluencer” by New York magazine’s Vulture, Zibby currently lives in New York with her husband and four children (ages 6 to 14).  She always has a book nearby.
