Were you an avid reader before you became a parent and then realized as much as you missed the escape, you chose sleep instead. Today’s guest created an entire brand around that just. Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books. I was introduced to her by our common friend, Eve Rodsky, and have been a fan ever since.
Zibby Owens is an author, podcaster, publisher, CEO, and mother of four.
She is the founder of Zibby Owens Media, a privately-held media company designed to help busy people live their best lives by connecting to books and each other. The three divisions include Zibby Books, a publishing house for fiction and memoir, Zcast, a podcast network powered by Acast including Zibby’s award-winning podcast Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books, and Moms Don’t Have Time To, a new content and community site including Zibby’s Virtual Book Club, events, and the former Moms Don’t Have Time to Write.
She is a regular columnist for Good Morning America and a frequent guest on morning news shows recommending books.
Editor of two anthologies (Moms Don’t Have Time to Have Kids and Moms Don’t Have Time To: A Quarantine Anthology), a children’s book Princess Charming, and now a memoir Bookends: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Literature, Zibby loves to write. She regularly pens personal essays, starting with her first one in Seventeen magazine in 1992.
Zibby lives in New York with her husband, Kyle Owens of Morning Moon Productions, and her four children.
