Summer Literature Soirée 2016

9781455101269Dear Readers,

I am excited to announce our Summer Literature Soirée for Saturday, August 20th from 9:30 am -3:30 pm.  This will be a full day of friendship, luxuriating in literature, and just plain fun!  We will discuss For the Children’s Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay as well as cover Renaissance history with a full session on Renaissance artists.  I’m excited about this as it’s going to give me the opportunity to really revisit some beloved artists and sculptors of this period. We will, of course, talk about the best children’s books for exploring this period and I don’t doubt you will all have some wonderful additions to add to the general richness!

Lunch is included of course, and I will be delighted to share some fresh goodness from my vegetable garden, and more than likely we will enjoy a

  1. I was not able to get the day of for your soiree, Is there any way I could get the children’s literature list for the Renaissance? Also, is this time period covered in the Early American History and World History study guide or the end of Medieval World study guide. I just ordered Medieval but don’t have it yet.

    Thank You!

    1. Hi Mary,
      Send me an email after the soiree as I am working on the list now. Most of the books are in our Medieval and Renaissance studies, but there are probably additional titles we will talk about and that might be of interest to you!

  2. I’m so sorry to miss this, I had wonderful chats with you at the Great homeschool convention and would so love to attend, but have a commitment that weekend I cannot leave. I would love there to be another opportunity to do this, or maybe you can make a special trip to Southern California to speak?
    God Bless you,
