After researching sleep for several years, Duff realized she had a book on her hands, and that’s where The Secret Life of Sleep came into existence. “Sleep is a really valuable natural resource,” she explains. “I think of it as akin to the water we drink, the air we breathe. It’s necessary for life; it supports everything we do by day. It’s an endangered resource that we need to protect.”
Although The Secret Life of Sleep is not a how-to manual for better sleep, Duff notes that it empowers readers to pay attention to their sleep and discover what encourages and prohibits it. “People tell me that just by reading the book, they’re sleeping better,” she says.
Duff will sign her book and host a question-and-answer session at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover, 2526 East Colfax Avenue. Call 303-322-7727 or visit tatteredcover.com.
