Book Club

Goal:


The goal of the Book Club is to give our Campo parent community the opportunity to gather, either in person or virtually, and discuss books of mutual interest.


Primary Activities:



The Book Club meets twice during the academic year and the books typically center around the topic of parenting young adults. Reading the book is encouraged but not a requirement for participation.


We also encourage creative thinking, enthusiasm for new ideas, a willingness to share experiences and listen to those of others.


Observers are also welcome to attend.


Upcoming Event:


The book we will be discussing is: The Parent Compass, Navigating Your Teen’s Wellness and Academic Journey in Today’s Competitive World by Cynthia Clumeck Muchnick and Jenn Curtis.


Date:


November 9, 7:00-8:00pm, in the Campo Library

How to get Involved:

Look for the latest Book Club event in the CPC Bulletin - and participate!
