Join us in person for “CHWB Book Club, Session 4: ‘Quiet’ by Susan Cain” on Thursday August 18, 2022 at 11 AM.

A book club can have several goals at once, including the social aspect of getting together with others in a relaxed setting and the focused activity of discussing various elements of a particular book that everyone in the group has (mostly) read. A recent survey by BookBrowse of over 5,500 individuals engaged in book clubs across the country reported that survey responders highlighted both the value of discussion focused on the chosen book AND the social nature of the group. In the latest session of our yearlong CHWB Book Club, you’ll join Dr. Annette Kelly, an avid reader, and the board president of Neighbors Network, who aims to help you do both!  

Or are you an extrovert or introvert?  Do we really understand these often-used descriptions of ourselves and others? How and why did extroversion become the sought after and frequently praised personality type?  “Quiet,” Susan Cain’s thoughtful and well-researched book, will have you thinking, especially if you are drawn to thinking, creating, and understanding yourself and others.  

Read “Quiet” by Susan Cain and make plans to join the CHWB Book Club for a lively discussion led by Dr Annette Kelly, current board president of the local nonprofit Neighbors Network.  

Special Note: Participants are asked to borrow or purchase the paperback of the featured book prior to the program’s start date. Book clubs work well when participants have read the book, but this is not a requirement. Being open to the opinions and reflections of others is important, as is staying on topic. Other elements of a “good” discussion: making room for everyone who wishes to speak, being attentive when others are speaking, not interrupting, or arguing, and encouraging less talkative members to join in.

Mark Your Calendars and Stay Tuned: The CHWB Book Club will meet on the following dates in 2022: October 20 and December 15. Book selection details and registration options to come! This program is presented by Dr. Annette Kelly and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
