08.29.19, 6-8pm: A Different Kind of Book Club
*Note: Registration includes a signed copy of Frieda B. and the Finkledee Ink, the book we'll be exploring and discussing during this book club.
This Week's Topic: "The Power of Belief, in Self & Others"
Each of us - every person, every age - has a unique combination of gifts and interests that make up the wiring to our one-of-a-kind story. But what if someone doesn't know that, doesn't believe that for him/herself? We'll discuss in this book club, based on Frieda B. and the Finkledee Ink: Belief is the singular power that transforms innate talents and interests into accomplishments. Without belief in self, without the supporting belief of others, one could argue nothing great could every be accomplished. Belief is powerful.
Ages 21 & Up
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.
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.
Come when you can - we cover a different book and topic each week.
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 Book: Frieda B. and the Finkledee Ink. Each week at The Story Barn we focus on the theme of one Frieda B. book, and incorporate that theme into all our events. This week's book is Finkledee Ink, the fourth book in the series.
Story Summary: When a traveling salesman comes to town selling Finkledee Ink, Frieda B. scrapes together every last penny to purchase a jar for herself. Her hope and belief is that this one jar of ink magically will make her a great writer (a deep longing she holds in her heart). But can a jar of ink truly hold the key to her dream? And if so, what happens to that dream when the jar of ink shatters? (Gasp!) Does her dream shatter, too? Frieda B. and the Finkledee Ink is a story to help children of all ages heartily believe that when it comes to our dreams and our natural gifts, there's nothing we need to buy or get. Nope. Everything is inside of us already. What we do need is dedication, perseverance, and the belief and support of others. And - more importantly - the belief in our very own selves.
