This past May, the youngest of my four children graduated from high school. After 24 years of having a child in our public school system, I’m no longer beholden to that calendar. However, I still can’t help but think of this as the beginning of the year.

January 1 can claim the possibilities that come with New Year’s resolutions, but the start of school? That’s about learning opportunities! True confession – I’m a school supply nerd, so it’s also a chance to get a new highlighter and some fun colored pens.

As I’m reflecting on the learning goals I’ll set for myself, it really boils down to what I’ll read.

Great news for me (and you) – LEAD is launching digital book discussions this fall with five amazing books! I’ve been in book clubs before, but never one I can attend while my dog sleeps on my bare feet.

I’m also intrigued by the chance to talk about the book with people from other places with lives different from my own.

If, like me, you’re thinking of the fall as the start of the year, check out #LEADReads!
