Book Club, "It Starts With a Dream": 6-7:30pm
At The Story Barn in Somers, CT! Ages 21 & Up. *Registration required. Participants are welcomed to bring food and beverages to enjoy as we read and discuss.
Book: Frieda B. Herself - and any other book (bring one or more with you!) that inspires the reader to dream and believe in his/her story and purpose.
Topic of the Evening: "It Starts With a Dream". Get ready to be inspired and to build your books-to-read list! Great literature inspires us to believe we are capable of doing something good, great, for the world around us... something that is purposeful and fulfilling, that is unique to our abilities and interests. It all starts with a dream of what we can do, what we can be. Literature that inspires us to dream in this way is essential to any/every age. What are books that inspire the reader to dream?
What is "A Different Kind of Book Club"? Well, 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)... it 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.
