What is a book group?

A book group is where a group of like-minded people get together after having read the same materials. Usually, they get together (often with a glass of wine) but during COVID groups are meeting virtually. This group can then have an informed discussion about those materials. Usually, the author of the book does not attend the meetings. The power of a book group is the collective knowledge, experience, and perspectives of its members. Each person's voice needs to be heard to form questions for discussion and to be able to analyze the materials.

We are honored to have the author Dr. James McKenna (pictured) join us for ALL five sessions.

FAQ

Rules of Engagement for Questions

The Right - And Wrong - Way To Ask A Question

Remember that this book group is a group to expand our knowledge on the latest clinical practice and research on breastfeeding. This is not a time to give a specific scenario and get a plan of what to do for that family or yourself. We will answer one question per person and take as many questions as possible during our time together.

We’ve discovered that there are two ways to ask a question. The first way is to ask a question that relates to a concept, strategy or idea shared in the book group and frame it in a way where the answer can benefit the entire group. This method gets two thumbs up and wild cheers from everyone.

The other way is more self-serving. It’s when you ask a question that’s so specific to you and not connected to the curriculum, that it’s hard for anyone else to relate or get value.

This kind of question gets a sad face from us, and especially from your fellow students.

The moral of the story is, of course, to ask a question in a way that serves both you and our entire community.

There are a few ground rules here. Start with your full name and where you’re from. Please keep your questions as concise as possible. If we need more details or backstory, she’ll let you know.

It’s our intention that this time together will bring you incredible clarity, inspiration and motivation. Not to mention some as-close-to-in-person-as-possible fun! We know it’s a virtual program but we feel so connected to this community and we are passionately committed to helping you become more knowledgeable about how to help more nursing families.
