This post isn't a helpful deed, but it *is* a rewarding one for *you*: Can working people, especially parents, in America or anywhere, ever find true leisure time? Brigid Schulte argues in her new book, "Overwhelmed," that we're doing dangerously little of it. Schulte, a staff writer for The Washington Post, asks: “Are our brains, our partners, our culture, and our bosses making it impossible for us to experience anything but “contaminated time?” The answer resulted in her book: a map of the stresses that have ripped our leisure to shreds, and a look at how to put the pieces back together. Schulte spoke to neuroscientists, sociologists, and hundreds of working parents to tease out the factors contributing to our collective sense of being overwhelmed, and today she’ll be at the Crawford Family Forum with KPCC’s Brian Watt today to tell us what she found out! Come see her, or tune in via livestream at the link below!
