Event Details

Tiffany Shlain, Founder, Let it Ripple Film Studio; Founder, Webby Awards; Author, 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week

Technology has made our lives infinitely easier. We can manage our lives, our jobs, our hobbies, our entertainment and even our relationships from the palm of our hands. But is it all too much, particularly for families with kids? And how can we exert some control over the technology and devices that increasingly dominate our lives? Internet pioneer and Silicon Valley creative force Tiffany Shlain has some answers. 

In her first book, 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week, Shlain explores how turning off screens one day a week can work wonders on your brain, body and soul. This practice, which she’s done for nearly a decade with her Marin County-based family, has completely changed their lives, giving them more time, productivity, connection and presence. She and her family call it “technology Shabbat.” 

With humor and wisdom, Shlain's book shares her personal story, offers lessons she has learned and provides a blueprint for how others can adopt the practice. Along the way, she delves into the neuroscience, philosophy, psychology and history of a weekly day of rest across cultures, making the case for why we urgently need to bring this ritual back in our technology-saturated lives.

Please join us for a special night about not only compelling personal story but a far-reaching examination of the complex world we’ve created and how we go about rebalancing ourselves, our families and our society.

Location: Outdoor Art Club, One West Blithedale, Mill Valley
Time: 7 p.m. check-in and reception (wine available), 7:30–8:45 p.m. program, 8:50 p.m. book signing
