Is it just me, or do you love the books we’ve been reading? Out With It by Katherine Preston has been so good (I’m working on finishing it up this week), and I’m so eager to dive into next month’s book, which is one I’ve had my eye on for a while. So, with just a few days left in the month of August, it’s time to announce the book club pick for September…
This coming month, we’ll be reading Daring Greatly by Brené Brown. It’s a book that is all about vulnerability—something I strive for in my own life, but am admittedly super afraid of. Here’s a bit more about the book, courtesy of Amazon:
Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.
As always, I’ve created a Facebook group for us to engage in conversation throughout the reading process. I hope you’ll join and share your favorite quotes and personal reflections over the course of the month!
Will you be joining along and reading Daring Greatly this month?
