During the summer of 2013, I started a book club to engage local mothers and daughters from various backgrounds, contexts, experiences, and schools (i.e. public, charter, private, and homeschool). When we started, most of the girls were 10 years old.
Among the participants in our book club are moms and professionals from fields such as law, business, and education. Together we’ve read over 60 books! Our monthly meetings have a typical routine – discussing the book, eating book-related food, and doing a book-related or inspired activity. We have an annual grandmother-mother-daughter meeting and try to do occasional film or other literature-related outings.
