Book Club: The Sleep Revolution, March 13 @ 7pm
In today’s 24/7 fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually harried, and sleep-deprived world, the hunger for sleep is only getting stronger. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on the worldwide sleep crisis, and offers a road map for how we can take back our sleep and transform our lives and our world.
Looking forward to seeing you on Monday, March 13 at 7pm.
Noting that it's "our collective delusion that overwork and burnout are the price we must pay in order to succeed," she asserts that it's not worth it. Sleep deprivation, she says, is linked with increased risks of diabetes, heart attack, stroke, cancer, obesity, and Alzheimer's disease. Among the many topics she covers are the sleep crisis (40 percent of Americans get less than the recommended seven hours), the sleep industry (pills), sleep history (the ancient Greeks and Egyptians often spent the night in "sleep temples"), jet lag, sleep innovations, and sleep tips.
She name-drops––after all, she is Arianna Huffington: Jennifer Aniston's manager tells her that she, too, collapsed from exhaustion. So compelling and informative is Huffington's book that everyone should read it and sleep!

Babe Zaharias, Sat, April 1 @ Noon
Babe Didrikson Zaharias
The Greatest Ever
Sat, April 1 @ Noon
Actress Linda Kenyon will channel the multi-talented Babe Didrikson in a performance sure to astound whether you love sports or not.
Born Mildred Ella Didrikson in Texas 1911, Babe became America's greatest female athlete. She combined raw talent, hard work, and an unquenchable thirst for winning in a world in which women were not allowed or encouraged to be athletic, competitive, ambitious or to sweat.
For us today, it is no "big deal" to have women competing in sports. Not many years ago, this was a revolutionary idea - and Babe led the revolution.
In 1953, Babe was diagnosed with cancer. Until her death, Babe publicized her condition, served as a spokesperson for The American Cancer Society, and raised millions for cancer research while competing as a golfer. Here again she was revolutionary, because cancer was "just not talked about" in the America of the 1950's.
