Zibby Owens is on her way to becoming one of the most important people in publishing.
The publishing world is starting to view her in the same way it views Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon. And she was named New York City's top "book-fluencer." (Yes, that's a thing.)
Zibby's "Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books" podcast is a play on the fact that moms need to make time for themselves. Reading is the escape many women turn to for motivation, inspiration and an escape from the stresses of life. And, as a divorced mom of four kids, Zibby practices what she preaches.
In just three years, Zibby's daily, 30-minute podcast has become the show NY Times best-selling authors fight to get on to keep their status. And, it's become the place aspiring authors hope to appear to launch their careers.
She recently published "Moms Don't Have Time To: A Quarantine Anthology." The book is a collection of essays from authors who have appeared as guests on her podcast.
