Zibby is an author, publisher, indie bookstore owner, CEO and Founder of Zibby Media, and a mother of four. Zibby launched her whole second career (after staying home with the kids for 11 years) with this personal, conversational, literary podcast. Now downloaded over 10 million times, Moms Don't Have Time to Read Books has consistently been in the top 200 on the Apple Arts charts and is a must-listen for the bookish set. It even won the prestigious Webby Award.

Zibby's warm style, inquisitive manner, and unscripted format earned her the title "NYC's Most Important Book-fluencer" by Vulture. Along the way, she has published her own memoir Bookends: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Literature, a children's book, and two anthologies. And it all started right here. Learn more about Zibby at
