The moms at Working Moms Against Guilt are thrilled to announce our first-ever live online event! Saturday, June 1, we’ll be hosting a Google Hangout with Christine Fonseca, author of THE GIRL GUIDE: FINDING YOUR PLACE IN A MIXED-UP WORLD.
We’re calling our event the WMAG Mother/Daughter Book Club—Girls’ Night In! Moms, this is a chance to spend some quality time with your tween/teen daughters, getting expert advice on finding your authentic voice and dealing with common challenges such as bullying and feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities at school and home.
Angela, Sara and Becky have been reading THE GIRL GUIDE with their daughters, and they’ll lead the discussion with some questions for Christine about the book, followed by questions about more specific challenges they and their girls might be facing. We hope to open it up to viewers to ask questions, too. Plus, we’ll be giving away a free copy of the book.
WMAG Mother/Daughter Book Club—Girls’ Night In! starts at 7 p.m. EST, June 1. We’ll keep you posted on the details, so stay tuned!
We hope to see you there!
