"Year of the Sister" Monthly Audios
During this episode, you'll hear about the criteria Well-Read Mom uses when choosing a book for our book club.
We'll discuss the importance of tradition, humanity, and art in literature.
We'll also consider whether it is possible to interact with, study, consider, and read books that stretch us outside our comfort zone? Books that include objectionable content, written by authors whose world-view, behavior, or experiences may at times diverge from what is virtuous and moral? If so, how should we read these books?
You'll also hear more about the specific method that Well-Read Mom groups use in their monthly meetings: Read, compare, share, and accompany.
Panelists include: Marcie Stokman, president and founder of Well-Read Mom, Inc., mother of seven, grandmother of eleven.
