Unbalanced and Exploding

This just in from my friends at Woodhull:

On Wednesday, Nov. 28 here in NYC, Leslie Morgan Steiner, editor of the best selling anthology "Mommy Wars" and the writer of the WashingtonPost.com column "On Balance" opens up about her struggles to manage life as mother with ambitious career goals. At this seminar, she will discuss how she navigates through the hectic world of "having it all" and what she's learned from talking with all types of mothers about how they made their choices to stay at home or go to work.

Completely Unbalanced: Exploding Work/Life Myths

Not to be a party pooper, but I take pretty much everything Steiner says with a large grain of salt. I'm really not sure how she's been able to build this Mommy Wars empire, but I say it's time to stop.

Hey, party poop away. I'm totally sick of the wars too and confess to not having read Steiner's Mommy Wars--though I am a fan of Miriam's The Truth about The Mommy Wars, which questions, if I'm remembering correctly, the divisions...?

Becky said...

I read Steiner's Mommy Wars. Ack. I need to post my review one of these days. Total PR crap. "The mommy wars is WITHIN us."

That said, I'd still go to see her ... just to see what happens. You going?

PunditMom said...

I agree about Miriam's book -- totally different approach.

Hi Becky--I'd like to go to, to hear, but I'm headed to a friend's book party tonight! Too many things going on in this town, I swear. But if you go and would like to guest post about it here, please do let me know!
