  • Gabriel Sewtz, Park Slope mom, Real Estate Broker and co-founder of The Audacity Of Park Slope, a grassroots organization in Park Slope, Brooklyn that supports Barack Obama. She'll tell us why she thinks Obama is the best choice for President.

  • Barbara Ensor is a Park Slope mom, as well as an Author and Illustrator of children's books for today’s hip tweens. Her books Cinderella (As If You Didn’t Already Know the Tale) and Thumbalina: Tiny Runaway Bride both re-tell classic children' s stories with a creative, contemporary twist. Her books have been given great reviews not only for the unique way the stories are re-told, but for their whimsical black-and-white silhouette spot illustrations.
  • "Mummy Tummy Time" with Frances Darnell, of Pilates Garage in Park Slope. She'll show you how to get your tummy flat again after having a baby. Frances is a Certified Pilates Instructor whose teaching has focused on fitness training, postpartum, scoliosis, and the foot. She is also a certified hang gliding instructor who has been featured on MTV.

The Author will talk about the over-commercialization of parenting and babyhood and how sometimes "less is more" when it comes to parenting. Parenting, Inc. has received ample praise.
  • Trish Dalton, an award winning Park Slope Documentary Filmmaker and founder of the monthly documentary film series in the Park Slope Food Coop. Her recent film, 34x25x36, explores the idea of perfection through the design and manufacturing of mannequins in LA. Question to ponder: Is Barneys the new religion?
