This month, Girls Leadership book clubs will read books about girls who know who they are, and decide to be true to themselves by using the written word to explore their identities, express themselves, and make sense of the world.
This month, Girls Leadership book clubs will read books in which the main characters take control of their lives by thinking for themselves, making bold choices, and taking action that furthers their own hopes and dreams.
The books for the third Girl & Grown-Up Book Club meeting of the 2017-2018 school year feature characters who face big changes and must adjust to new realities in life and in relationships.
This month’s Girls Leadership Girl & Grown-up Book Club selections remind us that true belonging gives a more profound sense of being home than any place can give.
The books we’ve chosen for the first Girl & Grown-Up Book Club meetings of the 2017-2018 school year feature characters who are struggling to develop new friendships and dealing with change in their existing friendships. We chose to think about these books with a focus on inclusion and empathy.
This year, in addition to giving ourselves a new name and expanding the grade levels of our participants, we’ve decided to announce all the book titles for the whole year… right now!
