Image result for little women book    BOOK CLUB (Santa Clarita)

Cost: Free

Time: Fridays at 11am-12pm

Coordinator: Christina Surette

The book club will take turns reading and discussing the book and also go over vocabulary and learn about the 60 authors Alcott alludes to in Little Women.

Some notes on Little Women by the author John Matteson:

The March sisters of Little Women affirm the importance of both family and literary awareness; Alcott cites or alludes to at least 60 other authors in Little Women. Little Women is also unusual among American novels of adolescence in that the main characters make successful transitions to adulthood. Holden (Catcher in the Rye) ends up in a mental hospital. Huck (Huckleberry Finn) lights out for the territory because he can’t deal. Little Women can strengthen both boys and girls with its message that adolescence is navigable.

Even though all enrolled students are welcome at any of our game/social nights, some of our families in the San Fernando Valley (Northridge & Sherman Oaks locations) might not want to drive up to Santa Clarita too many times, so we will have a social evening the first Saturday of each month at S.L.A.M. Tutoring in Sherman Oaks or at other nearby locations.  We might do game nights some months, other months it might be a movie night and lastly we might go do something else that is fun, like bowling, ice skating, trampoline park, and whatever else you might suggest : )  Santa Clarita and Lancaster families are welcome to join in as well!  Bring a snack to share.

Cost: Free

Ages: 5+yo.

Time: 1st Saturday of the month at 7-9pm

Coordinator: Elmarie Hyman and Nooneh Kradjian

Location: S.L.A.M. Tutoring, 14332 Ventura Blvd. (c/o Beverly Glen & Ventura in the brown brick strip mall).  Parking is available under the building and usually is free on weekends.
