“Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time”
Transforming Health has teamed up with Aligning Forces for Quality - South Central PA and the Central PA library systems to ignite meaningful dialogue around the busyness of our culture and discuss ideas to reduce the feeling of being overwhelmed. Through September 17, the public is invited to participate in “A Summer Read,” a unique program that encourages residents to visit local libraries to borrow “Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time,” written by New York Times bestselling author and award-winning journalist Brigid Schulte and hold a discussion with their book clubs, friends, family and colleagues.
Author Brigid Schulte
In the book, Schulte explains the various ways our lives have reached a frantic pace and have become too complicated. Schulte’s experience as a journalist, wife, and mother allow her to intimately address wide-reaching stressors, as well as provide an optimistic perspective on how to tackle the busyness, find time for the important things, and live a fulfilled life.
Participants in “A Summer Read” will have the chance to win a free copy of the book, meet Schulte during a private book signing, and hear her speak on September 29, 2014 at York College. Thirty winners will be chosen.
After reading the book, use this discussion guide to continue the conversation with other readers, and be sure to complete a survey to be entered into the drawing. All surveys must be submitted by September 17, 2014!
