I’d love to come to your book club!

by Katrina on January 30, 2014

Is your book club reading Maxed Out? I love talking with book clubs—both corporate book clubs or regular ol’ book clubs in someone’s living room. If you gather a group of 8 or more people, I can join for the last 30 minutes of your book club discussion either by phone or video conference (Skype, Google Hangout, etc.) to answer questions. Contact me at katrina@workingmomsbreak.com to set something up.

Be sure to use this handy dandy Book Club Discussion Guide to get you started.

The problem with writing about being maxed out while you’re still living it is that some things you care about simmer on the back burner, (like this blog). Here’s a quick round up of upcoming events and book news.

Other Places My Writing Has Appeared Recently

Recent Press

I thought Maxed Out would mainly be of interest to Americans, but I’m pleased to say the book has been covered in print, TV, and/or radio in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Poland, Australia, and several other countries I never thought would care. Which only goes to show that women are maxing out all over the world. Below are a few recent press links.

You have fans in Schenectady. Your Mom sells her beautiful crafts to my bookstore! If there is any time that you are coming home for a visit…let us know and we can set up a speaking and booksigning perhaps at the public library.



Oh, that would be great! Thank you Janet. I may be in NY in April for another speaking event (NYC). I’ll keep you posted (through Jane). Is your bookstore the Open Door?



Of course it’s the Open Door — I just looked at your link. My favorite east coast bookstore. 😉

It was SO great to attend your reading at the Temescal library today! Thank you for your book–I love that you share your own story as well as focus on the personal, familial and societal changes that need to happen for more working families to have saner, healthier lives.

I want to help spread the word about your book and will email Michael Krasny at Forum to encourage him to invite you as a guest pronto. Please encourage others to do the same: forum@kqed.org




Thank you so much for doing that! It was great meeting you, Giannina.

I can’t tell you how many people have told me how happy they were you joined us. It was SUCH a treat. I can’t wait to see you in person one of these days. For now I keep spreading the word, “WE DO NOT HAVE TO DO IT ALL!” And then I crack open you book for comfort. Thank you for everything you continue to do and represent!! So much love.



Thank you! I’m blushing. It was my pleasure. 🙂
