1619: It’s time for our 5th discussion!
We’ll be discussing Chapters 10-12 this Sunday, June 12
Welcome to Week 19! This week, we’re getting ready for our fifth discussion coming up this Sunday, June 12, 2:00 - 3:30 pm PT. We’ll be discussing Chapters 10, 11, and 12.
Reminder: As I noted at our last discussion, I can’t make it this time because I’ll be cheering for my niece as she graduates from college. Do not fret; you will be in very good hands. Fellow Book Clubbers Elise and Telannia (who are also expert facilitators at Article Club) will lead the proceedings.
Here are a few ways to prepare for this Sunday:
Catch up on Chapters 10-12 if necessary
For each essay: Identify one topic, question, or passage you’d like to explore
Reflect on what you learned and why it is meaningful to you
Here’s the plan for this Sunday:
You’ll convene all together for a brief introduction. It’ll be short like last time, so you have more time for discussion.
Then you’ll break off into your small conversation groups. You’ll have 60-65 minutes to discuss the three essays.
At the end of the session, you’ll come back as a whole book club for individual reflection and group celebrations.
The Zoom link is in your calendar invitation. Elise and Telannia will be logging on 10 minutes early. All right, let’s head to next steps.
If you haven’t RSVPd yet to the calendar invite: Please do!
Optionally: What are your hopes for this week’s discussion? In the comments, say hi to your groupmates and share your hopes for our fifth meeting.
Thank you! Reach out if you have any questions. All you need to do is hit reply. Happy reading.
Friends! On Sunday from 2 - 3:30, I will be at the airport waiting to board a 4 pm flight. I am going to try my very best to join you all on my phone. There are SO MANY connections between our text and what is unfolding all around us. That is always true, but it is especially, and heartbreakingly, vivid in this time. Sending you all the best. I have learned so much from our shared conversations over these last months. And, for those of you on a school calendar--deep breath! We're almost there!
