Pelican Book Club: Peace Like a River


In the summer of 2015 we tried something new. We decided our students shouldn't be the only ones who have all the fun! That's why we created our "grownups" book club, and we've had so much fun taking time out of each season to gather together over tea or coffee and discuss great ideas with you. With the recent creation of The Pelican Society, we seized the opportunity to make our book club a regular event. We now host quarterly meetings for all teachers, parents, or bookworms who want to spend an afternoon encouraging one another and chatting about a good read. Sometimes we'll pick the books, sometimes we'll ask you to pick the books, but we will always make sure our time together is tons of fun, filled with fruitful conversation, and not intimidating in the least!


Our next meeting will take place on August 4th from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. We will be discussing Leif Enger's Peace Like a River, the story of a young boy whose tragic family circumstances confront him with an unexpected journey and the reality of miracles. There's an $11 fee for non-members, but Pelican Society members get in for free. Your only "assignment" is to do your best to read Peace Like a River before joining the discussion. And if you would like a sneak peek of what you are getting yourself into, you can listen to the recording of our first meeting in our audio library!
