Book Club

POWER READS: Women Reading, Women Leading

“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”- Harry Truman.

It is time to focus on your personal and professional development. What better way to do that than with a good book and friends.  The TCWLA Power Reads book club will meet for lunch as scheduled below to discuss books and other sources, such as podcasts, on leadership or professional development. Come and be ready to discuss the book led by a special guest Power Player in our community. Registration will open approximately 4 weeks before each scheduled event so keep an eye out for the notices.  Even if you cannot join us, take a moment to Power Read along.  We will be holding the initial meetings virtually. When practical and safe, we hope to hold our meetings in person.

Come read with us, come lead with us!
