Her articles on various topical issues have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, CNN.com, the Huffington Post and she has been featured several times on NBC’s Today show. The title of her latest book, Ignore It!: How Selectively Looking the Other Way Can Decrease Behavioral Problems and Increase Parenting Satisfaction, says it all, providing much needed practical advice and strategies on parenting that has never been more needed.
Author, yoga teacher and ex-corporate executive Sara DiVello’s book, “Where in the OM Am I?” is the 100% true story of her journey from the fast-paced, cut-throat corporate world to the slow-living, cut-throat yoga world and all of the entertaining “characters” in both worlds. The book jacket describes it as “The Devil Wears Prada meets Eat, Pray, Love” and an “engaging, inspiring tale of self-discovery.” DiVello “blends keen cultural observation with a terrifically wry wit.”
This event is moderated by Amy Bass Ph.D., NRPL Foundation Board Member, historian and acclaimed author of One Goal: A Coach, A Team and the Game That Brought A Divided Town Together.
