A new Pelican Question has been posted in the Pelican Forum!
What rituals and traditions does your family observe on the first day of school (even if its not in the fall)? What have you done in the past or plan to do now to set a good tone for the year? What helps you feel prepared for the new academic calendar?
Post in this thread by August 24th for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Coldstone Creamery (or an ice cream shop near you). Be sure to hashtag your post #pelicanquestion – this will make the conversation searchable in the Muut top bar.
Over the last year we have been blessed to see this posse grow a great deal, and now that we have so many voices and perspectives in our group, we would really love the chance to get some good community conversation happening inside the forum. If we've learned anything these past two years, it's that there is no encouragement quite like Pelican encouragement! So to that end, we're going to start implementing the “Pelican Question.” We'll do this about twice a month. We'll post a topic for conversation, and whoever participates in the thread will automatically be entered to win a sweet prize.
Go to the Pelican forum, search "#pelicanquestion," and reply to our newest post to get started!
We need your help! Our Pelican Book Club meetings have been such a blast, and the larger the crowd the richer the conversation! We would love to have as many Pelicans as possible join us for these events, so in the interest of facilitating your schedule please take the survey below to help us pin down the best time.
Also, when we asked for reading recommendations at our last meeting, we noticed a trend: many of you would love to dig deeper into the works of C.S. Lewis. Lewis is one of our all time favorites, and the father of a great deal of our thinking about literature here at CenterForLit, so we would be thrilled to have a chance to discuss his work with you! Please vote for the title below you are most interested in tackling first, and we will make that our summer book club read.
If you were unable to join us earlier this month for our discussion of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, you can now access a recording of the event (along with all of our other book club discussion) inside your membership!
