Liz O'Donnell, Mogul, Mom, & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman

The state of working women has been declared and debated since the days of Rosie the Riveter. The headlines, and the statistics behind them, however, don't tell the whole story. The truth is, many women today are breadwinners; and these breadwinners are struggling. They are caught in a perfect storm of male-dominated culture at work, traditional social norms at home, and outdated schedules in the school. Mogul, Mom, & Maid takes an honest look at how women are balancing home life and career. The pressures of child rearing, coupled with an unfulfilling corporate culture, are too great to be ignored. Author Liz O'Donnell goes beyond statistics and tells the stories of women all across America who are juggling careers, motherhood, marriage, and households. Mogul, Mom, & Maid looks at the choices women are making, the options they have, and the impact these decisions have on themselves, their families, and the businesses that employ them.

Meet Ellen Stimson, author of Mud Season
 Mud Season was one of bestsellers last year, and if you liked that, you'll love Ellen's new book, Good Grief!  ,  the continuing adventures of her family in the wilds of Vermont.  One hesitates to call any book "the quintessential New England book," but this has to be among the finalists. Meet Ellen on Thursday, October 30, at 7 PM.

 
Strongest week of the year for new releases
A lot of important books hit the shelves tomorrow (Tuesday)--important because they're ground-breaking, important because they're entertaining, important because they're artfully written--or all of the above. Here are just a few examples. Click the cover art for more details.  And come have a look tomorrow!
