New Book Released About One Family’s Experiences from “A Year Unplugged: A Family's Life Without Technology”

Author and journalist, Sharael Kolberg is pleased to announce the release of her new book, “A Year Unplugged: A Family’s Life Without Technology.”

Laguna Beach, CA, May 14, 2015 –(– Imagine life without technology. No cellphones, no television, no access to the world as we know it. One family did it and the author shares their stories, both good and bad about their year – Unplugged.

In “A Year Unplugged,” Sharael Kolberg chronicles her family’s brave attempt to wean themselves from technology in an effort to reclaim quality family time. The Kolbergs decided to turn off their television, unplug their iPods, iPhones, laptops and digital cameras, and disconnect from e-mail, cell phones and the Internet. Not an easy task.

Sharael’s true-life tale explores how dependent we are on technology and the impact it has on interpersonal relationships and society. Through thought-provoking, humorous and heart-wrenching narrative, Sharael hopes to compel readers to open dialogue about the conscious use of technology.

“A Year Unplugged” is available in print and ebook formats. Print copies can also be purchased at Laguna Beach Books:
