Grown Up Book Club
From 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm |
That’s right… we’re having a night out on the town and pretending it’s a book club. This grown up only event is designed to bring homeschooling parents together for an evening of discussion, debate and fun! The first book that we are reading is John Holt’s How Children Fail (https://www.amazon.com/Children-Fail-Classics-Child-Development/dp/0201484021/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483314470&sr=8-1&keywords=How+Children+Fail). This book is not his best, but it is definitely great to start at the beginning if you know nothing about John Holt. He coined the name “Unschooling” and promoted homeschooling as a viable alternative to traditional education. His magazine “Growing Without Schooling” provided community and support for homeschooling families around the country in a time when it was illegal and frowned upon to homeschool in most places.
Everyone is welcome to join, whether you are a veteran homeschool parent, you’re new to homeschooling, or you’re just thinking about it. Please RSVP if you plan to attend just so we’ll know how many to expect!
