Book Clubs

Our quarterly book club meetings are a chance to connect and reconnect with other parents while exploring a range of topics related to raising children. Come to the book club ready to discuss what you learned while reading the book selected for that session – what you liked, what was useful, and what didn’t make sense. The book club meetings are highly interactive with lots of discussion.

No Book This Time:

Join Us for Conversation & Connection

Normally, I have a book club in July. But I am having a hard time reading anything unless it is in the news, related to my job, or to my children. My heart just isn’t in choosing a book to read right now. As such, my plan is to meet online (by Zoom) for conversation and connection, and to resume the book club in October.

Free, but registration is required.
