If you love the interchange, banter and community of a book club (but maybe don't always have time to read the book and/or commit to a regular schedule)... our Different Kind of Book Club might be juuust the right fit.  

At each Book Club we'll explore and discuss a different Frieda B. book... you may - or may not - be surprised at the depth of conversation a picture book can prompt. This is what makes this book club different. And wonderful.

For parents, educators, caregivers... the topics we explore can help you consider and navigate the stories within the little lives you help to lead.

For individuals, friends, family members - adults of any age... it is never too late to nurture and further our own stories. Come to explore and encourage the story within you and within those you love. 

No need to read the book - led by Frieda B. author Renata Bowers, we'll read and discuss it together. The joy of seeing adults find deep meaning and discussion in the pages of our books never ceases to inspire us. Story has its own innate way of awakening our sense of purpose, wonder, compassion and possibility. 

Be part of authentic community - there is little more fulfilling than being part of the connections that take place when good people engage in good and purposeful discussion. After all, the best of book clubs are as much about community as they are about books. We soundly encourage both.

Come join us as we use written story to inspire the one-of-a-kind free-to-be story within each of us.

This Week's Topic: "Craving Community"  

Based on Frieda B. and the Zillabeast. There's a community-shaped hole in each of our hearts, that only the act of giving to others will fill. We often push our kids (and ourselves) to excel, to be the best, in order to make a name for themselves as they grow. But have you ever noticed? The people who put others first are the ones who most often build for themselves a life of love and belonging, while sole-achievers often struggle with loneliness. Nothing compares to authentic community; we crave it. This is the message we'll be exploring.

* As part of this Book Club, signed copies of this book will be available to participants for a discounted price of $10 each. 

Frieda B. and the Zillabeast Story Summary: Frieda B. loves books. So much so that she often becomes part of them; the words spring up under her feet and the pictures and characters become a world she’s able to walk right into. Frieda B. and the Zillabeast begins with just such an adventure. Frieda and Zilla enter a marvelous storyworld of classic fairytales. Yet with each turn of the page, Zilla grows bigger, bristlier, and growlier – until a hair-raising encounter with Little Red Riding Hood puts everyone on edge. What turned him into a Zillabeast? And what can bring him back to the sweet Zilla we all know and love? The answers to those questions reveal a lot about the importance of putting others first… and the love we welcome in to our lives when we do.
