Well hello my dears,
As you may have heard, I’M LAUNCHING A BOOK CLUB (you can read more about that here) where I will feature a mix of fiction, non-fiction, and spiritual titles over the next several months. And I’m so excited to kick it off with John Green’s gorgeous young adult novel, Turtles All The Way Down. It follows a young woman’s attempt to know who she is in the midst of her illness, discovering lessons about love and meaning in the middle of the things she can’t change.
There are lots of ways to engage the material. Each month we will have discussion questions, places to interact on social media, new articles hosted here at KateBowler.com, and new Everything Happens podcast episodes that coincide with the book—but don’t worry, no spoilers. And it’s totally free (my Mennonite family’s favorite word), so if you can’t purchase the book or can’t find extra time to read, I would love for you to participate by engaging the extra resources.
And there are lots of ways to get connected too—whether that’s leaving comments here on the website or jumping on the Twitter chat or making new friends on an Instagram comment thread. Maybe these conversations can extend into your living room, at your favorite coffee shop, at your office, or in your church. No matter where the conversation takes place, my hope and prayer is that these books will become a gathering place for us to develop shared language and feel a bit less lonely. Will you join me?
