I am very excited to announce the opening of The Gathering: A supportive girls’ book club fostering connection and community in Petaluma. The group is for 6th-8th grade girls and 9th-12th grade girls kicking off Summer 2012.
Why a Book Club for Girls? Growing up on the East Coast allowed for many hot summer days, laying on the beach, and reading stories with my girlfriends as a teen. I remember the close connection I felt to my friends as we laughed, cried, and embraced a story together while eating food and our beach blankets in a circle as we were transported to another place and time in our minds. This time of my life was such a gift and I hold these memories close to my heart. I am hoping to create this feeling through the The Gathering.
What to Expect? Come enjoy stories as we lie in the sun on comfy blankets in the grass, eat delicious snacks, and embark on an adventure reading books together and discussing the messages and thoughts around the stories we are being told. Build friendships and learn to voice your ideas in a safe and kind environment. Books, snacks, comfy blankets, and a good time are all included in the fee. No reading prior to the group expected and there is no homework. We will read and discuss books together as a group.
