RE-INTRODUCTION TO PWR

Welcome to Powerful Women Readers. This book group/society of women is the resurrected book group of the Alvin branch of the American Association of University Women from back in the 80s. We have been active as an on-line book club group since September of 2015 and have had a few get-togethers open to all PWR members and their friends who share a love of reading, books, and literacy concerns.

We believe in life-long learning, and reading and sharing books is part of that goal. We suggest good books to read and get together irregularly and spasmodically to share book recommendations, pass along books we’ve read, and encourage others in our efforts to promote literacy locally and nationally. Some of us have been “planting” Little Free Libraries in our yards and around the Alvin area.

The PWR post is available as well at https://powerfulwomenreaders.wordpress.com  Many of our bookish friends follow us on-line and sometimes make comments on books we present to them.

If you would like,  start a conversation with other bibliophiles by typing what you are currently reading in the reply box below.  PWR would like to hear from YOU!

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
