As editor-in-chief of Conde Nast’s House & Garden, Dominique Browning found herself fired when the magazine folded on November of 2007. She had four days to pack up her belongings and was suddenly, without warning, out of work.

Slow Love is Dominique’s new book and as she describes it, ” it’s about wearing your pajamas to the farmer’s market, packing up  a belovedslow-love-final-jacket home and downsizing to a more rural setting, making time to play the piano and go kayaking, picking up the Bible, reinventing yourself, and not cutting corners when it comes to love, muffins or gardening.”

We’ll talk about what it means to reinvent yourself when life suddenly changes beyond your control and how to find humor, joy and unexpected surprises in living a life that was never sought, but just happened. With excerpts from her book, Dominique fills us in on her journey from the fast paced Manhattan lifestyle of magazine deadlines and high-end events, to slowing down to love life and find happiness.
