October Homeschool Parents Book Club

Trying to get the notice out far enough in advance for people to have time to get the book and read it this time!

Our next meeting will be on Monday, October 15th, from 6:30 to 8pm, at the Barracks Rd Shopping Center's Barnes and Noble. There is no child care available, but older kids that can be by themselves in the store are welcome, as are nursing babies. Grandparents or other relatives can be encouraged to join in the discussions, as well.

For this meeting, I plan to discuss Grace Llewellyn's book The Teenage Liberation Handbook. From FUN Books' review:

Written especially for teenagers and people with teenagers in their lives, it is also helpful for anyone who has ever gone to school. Grace discusses how to regain the natural ability to learn and be excited about it, ways of going to college, volunteering, apprenticeships, and more. Leans toward an "unschooling" approach, which Grace is able to superbly articulate. Popular for teenagers who plan on taking charge of their education, whether they are currently homeschooling, planning on homeschooling, or moving on to college.
I think it's a great book for parents of kids of all ages, not just teens. Even if you haven't read it, you are still welcome to join us. If anyone would like to suggest a book for November, please let me know soon.

As always, I am also glad to take time to explain the legal aspects of homeschooling in Virginia. People are welcome to join the book club at any time.
