Our Bookish Philosophy

Had to finish the quote:
“Because when you read a book as a child it becomes part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does…”-Kathleen Kelly in You’ve Got Mail

The Bookish Society is about freeing your mind toward creativity, empathy, and exploration and not worksheets and vocab and right answers.

In our round table groups, kids read a book on their own, and then get together with other kids to talk about that story
I’m there to facilitate this organic exchange of thoughts and ideas.
Round table doesn’t look or sound like a “class” because we aren’t in a classroom.

In these days of 2020, we could all use a lesson in empathy or two. Please go read this excellent article in the NYT if you haven’t already.

We empower your student to explore literature as a means to personal and intellectual fulfillment—not just to get the right answer or best grade. Your child will learn how to shape and defend their own opinions, as well as effectively analyze the mechanics of the material.

If that sounds like one of your goals for this time of home learning please sign up now for our October Round Table Sessions.
