The event takes place 4-5:00 pm EST / 3:00-4 CST.
A free book club for “Language at the Speed of Sight” will be hosted by the Reading League Wisconsin and Dr. Molly Farry-Thorn. Dr. Farry-Thorn got her PhD from Washington University in St. Louis and is now a postdoctoral researcher working with me. Meetings will be hosted live on Zoom on four Sundays in October and November (10/4, 10/18, 11/1, 11/15) at 3pm Central Time, and last around an hour.
The portions of the meetings where Dr. Farry-Thorn is presenting will be recorded and shared videos on the Reading League Wisconsin YouTube channel. However, you must register to attend any of the live meetings. To register, fill out the google form at this link: https://forms.gle/e5XY74ewKnbs9fZZA
The deadline to register for this book club is 12pm Central Time on Friday, October 2nd.
Members of the book club will get first access to a full reader’s guide to the book with chapter summaries, links to cited research, definitions for key terms, supplemental content, and suggested discussion questions/activities. After the book club ends, the study guide will be posted on this website.
Each meeting will cover three chapters of the book. The schedule will be posted here and in the “Language at the Speed of Sight Book Club” Facebook group. However, you will not need to read the entire book to participate in these meeting. We realize people have limited time (and this is a dense book!), so there will be recommended pages to read for each meeting (although you are of course welcome to read more). During each meeting, Dr. Farry-Thorn will present a brief summary of the information in the book – we will assume that you have read the appropriate sections. Most of the meeting time will be devoted to discussion in breakout rooms and answering questions that come from these discussions. There will also be opportunities for discussion and questions in the Facebook group.
