Even though it has been years since I’ve gone looking for a backpack to hold all of my books or carefully printed out my supplies list to make sure I had the precise notebook, pencil, and calculator I’d need to begin, the rhythm of the back-to-school season still lives in my body. There’s the tiniest bit of wistful nostalgia for this time of year, and for me, it comes down to the joy of learning and the thrill of following a stream of curiosity to discover something new.
We like channeling this kind of energy—and this year, we want to help you discover something new. We’ve been offering a monthly fiction book group over Zoom for the past two years, and we’re adding a second book group this year–nonfiction! We’re excited to add this genre and hope it may inspire you to follow your own kernels of curiosity. Both groups will take place online.
Our fiction group will meet on the second Monday of the month from September – May. Our nonfiction group kicks off in October, meeting monthly on the first Thursday of the month, and will also run through May. Both groups run from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. You’ll find book titles and registration information on our website, www.skidompha.org.
