Northern Viewpoint Book Club - December: "From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler"

$10

with Christa Galipeau

Calendar Next available session starts Dec 1, 2022 at 6 pm

When Claudia decided to run away, she planned very carefully. She would be gone just long enough to teach her parents a lesson in Claudia appreciation. And she would go in comfort-she would live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She saved her money, and she invited her brother Jamie to go, mostly because be was a miser and would have money.

Claudia was a good organizer and Jamie bad some ideas, too; so the two took up residence at the museum right on schedule. But once the fun of settling in was over, Claudia had two unexpected problems: She felt just the same, and she wanted to feel different; and she found a statue at the Museum so beautiful she could not go home until she bad discovered its maker, a question that baffled the experts, too.

The former owner of the statue was Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Without her—well, without her, Claudia might never have found a way to go home.

 

Northern Viewpoint Book Club - February - "The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian"

$10

with Christa Galipeau

Calendar Next available session starts Feb 2, 2023 at 6 pm

Bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.

Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author's own experiences, coupled with poignant drawings by Ellen Forney that reflect the character's art, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.

With a foreword by Markus Zusak, interviews with Sherman Alexie and Ellen Forney, and four-color interior art throughout, this edition is perfect for fans and collectors alike.

Northern Viewpoint Book Club - March - 1984

$10

with Christa Galipeau

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 2, 2023 at 6 pm

Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...

 

A startling and haunting novel, 1984 creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the novel’s hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions—a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

Creativity & Innovation Toolkit

$79

with MindEdge Instructor

Creativity and innovation are not one and the same. Creativity is the generation of new ideas by individuals and teams. Innovation is the process of converting those ideas into new products, business practices, and strategies that create value.

It's a meaningful distinction because creativity needs to be translated into something concrete for it to generate value. Protecting and nurturing new ideas, and bringing them to fruition, is the basis of innovation. That innovation takes place in and through organizations making it more complex.

Leaders of organizations of all sizes and types hope to encourage creativity in their employees. Eliciting creative and innovative ideas within a group, team, or organization has become a crucial skill. The ability of leaders to nurture and protect new ideas is vital to the health of the organization.

Included with your course is a one (1) year complimentary subscription to Fast Company ($19.99 value). Your subscription will start with the current issue. Fast Company publishes 8 issues a year.
