Reporter Steve Woodward wrote an article on new Portland-area blogs, which includes Mother Daughter Book Club Blog, in today’s Oregonian! (Note: article archive has expired.)
You may have figured out by now that I’m passionate about these clubs, because I think there are so many long-term benefits to reading with your daughter and talking about what you’ve read with other people.
Over the years my daughters and I have read books that have made us wipe tears of laughter or sorrow from our eyes. We’ve also read books that have made it easier to talk about incredibly difficult topics like sex and drug use. Through it all we’ve been constantly enriched by close ties to the other moms and daughters in our groups.
I would like this to be a forum where mother daughter book club members can share book ideas or meeting activities as well as hear thoughts about discussion topics. So please post your comments about what you’d like to see covered or things that have been successful in your group. Send in questions too, and I’ll address them in future posts.
