MSLF Book Club

janeeyreDid you know that MSLF has a book club? Our fourth Reading for Life book lecture is fast approaching. Please join us for an evening of literature, inspired discussion and light refreshments. Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, has it all…mystery, love, intrigue and adventure; we hope to have you join us next month!

Register here.

What some of the MSLF parents and teachers who joined us for the past lectures had to say about the experience:

‘The facilitator is amazing! He believes that books are vertical and shares so many layers of the text – it expands the book and takes the discussion to a unique level of engagement.’

‘Participating in the discussion was enlightening because it allowed me to think at a level and in a way that my (current) day-to-day life doesn’t accommodate. Since the meeting I have thought often of its contents. Subsequently, I now recognize the need to carve out more time to think like that; it’s good for the mind…and the soul.’

‘Thanks again for this fantastic book group. I so thoroughly enjoyed the conversation and interpretation! Wow! I can’t stop thinking about it.’
