The Big Read 21-Day Wellness Challenge


Join me at the Lewis and Clark Public Library Helena Branch for four Thursdays in October as we read “Lab Girl” by Hope Jahren and talk about our experience with the book and our own self-care journeys.

Thursdays, October 3, 10, 17, and 24 from 12:05 to 12:55 PM.

Hope's journey in "Lab Girl" explores how plants nurture themselves, but often describes a work schedule that leaves her unable to spend time nourishing herself. Hope describes a situation where finding work-life balance is complicated, a problem with which many readers identify. In this series of four meetings, we'll explore and discuss methods of self-directed wellness. Each session will start with an assessment of where we're at with self-care. The library will provide journals where you can explore the challenges. Each week we will come together to discuss our findings and relate them back to “Lab Girl.”

We'll share in the Facebook event when you will be able to pick up your journal at any library branch, and then join us on Thursdays at noon in October at the library in Helena! Follow the event on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/673602589811077/
