08.08.19, 6-8pm: A Different Kind of Book Club
*Note: Registration includes a signed copy of Frieda B. Herself, the book we'll be exploring and discussing during this book club.
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 Topic: "Who Are You Free to Be?"
Based on Frieda B. Herself, we'll delve into the basics of better understanding self - who you are, who you're not, the significance of embracing and building your own unique strengths, and the importance of opting out of comparison culture. Whether encouraging the story in a child, yourself, or another adult, this is foundational stuff.
This Week's Theme: Frieda B. Herself. 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 theme is Frieda B. Herself, the first book in the series.
Story Summary: Here's the book that started it all... Red-headed, bare-footed Frieda B. is the world’s biggest dreamer. With a limitless and colorful imagination, she fully believes she is free to be what she dreams she can be, and so she explores and pursues those dreams with abandon. But when Frieda suddenly loses her dreams one night, how will she recover? The answer will provide inspiration and encouragement to children of all ages, to always believe in your own big dreams – and the very important, one-of-a-kind story you carry inside.
