For almost two years now I've hosted a book club for our year of creative habits group. Recently I decided to let the site go and put all my stuff together. Starting today I'll be sharing here instead.
So welcome to the year of creative habits book club! We read a book related to creativity every two months. The book is chosen through a poll in our Facebook group. For March/April, our book is A Glorious Freedom by Lisa Congdon.
You can buy this hardback book for about $13 or the kindle version for about $10. Or check for it at your local library! Here's the description:
"The glory of growing older is the freedom to be more truly ourselves—with age we gain the liberty to pursue bold new endeavors and worry less about what other people think. In this richly illustrated volume, bestselling author and artist Lisa Congdon explores the power of women over the age of forty who are thriving and living life on their own terms. Profiles, interviews, and essays from women—including Vera Wang, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Julia Child, Cheryl Strayed, and many more—who've found creative fulfillment and accomplished great things in the second half of their lives are lavishly illustrated and hand-lettered in Congdon's signature style. The perfect gift for women of all ages, A Glorious Freedom celebrates extraordinary lives and redefines what it means to gain wisdom and maturity." ––Amazon
