Hogg Junior High Girls Book Club & Iced Tea Social

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 12:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Our first Book Club & Tea was a huge success and attended by 30 students, and their teachers and counselors! After reading and discussing the memoir written by Texan teenager, Maya Van Wagenen, Popular:How a Geek in Pearls Discovered the Secret to Confidence, the students hope to make this an annual tradition!
 
Esteemed member and author Anne Sloan (a graduate of Hogg Junior High herself!), opened the program with a brief history on the importance women's book clubs and how they changed the face of American history for women since 1865. HHWC members filled the roles as moderators and engaged the students in thoughtful discussion including how the author's experience relates to their struggles to fit into junior high. Students also enjoyed an elegant presentation of tea sandwiches and baked treats. 
Special thanks to Anne Sloan, Karen Adams, Melissa Bauman, Lisa Cari, Debby Johnson, Linda Navarro, Rita Neagli, Andrea Ledoux Richards and Teresa Matlock for making our favorite tea time edibles!
