*In An Instant Author, mother and CBS This Morning contributor Lee Woodruff created a foundation for wounded veterans with husband/ABC News journalist Bob Woodruff after his traumatic brain injury and recovery from a roadside bomb while covering the Iraq war. If you are a woman in today’s world, chances are you too have become a multi-tasking maniac, with much pressure to do everything well. With a bit of humor, Woodruff connects the commonalities of being a daughter, mother, friend, working woman and caregiver.
*Building a Life That’s True to You Author, global speaker, playwright, actor and marketing-to-women expert Mary Lou Quinlan’s latest book, The God Box, became a New York Times bestseller in just three weeks.

Transforming Stories of Change
*Regina Calcaterra’s memoir “Etched in Sand” is a life-changing read of triumph against all odds that reached #2 on the NY Times bestseller list. It leaves us believing that any act of care toward a child in need – even for just a moment in time – can have life-long positive effects. Regina, an accomplished public and private sector attorney, foster care advocate, and recipient of numerous humanitarian awards, will lead a moving conversation that will result in us seeing and acting differently. A compelling primer on how we can engage to change individual lives and communities.
