Dear Friend,
Thank you for your interest in Tuesday night's Musings Book Club. The four chapters we covered: Attention, Imagination, Education of the Senses and Intelligence really provoked some interesting discussions about Montessori's views and how they might guide our work today. To those of you who were able to attend, thank you for joining us and for preparing and sharing such thoughtful reflections and insights.

Our next Book Club session takes place on Tuesday 3 May at 19.00 (UTC+1) and you can register here. This will be our last Book Club of this academic year and we will finish by reflecting on the chapters:
  • Prizes and Punishments
  • Will
  • Moral Education
We are conscious that it has been hard for some of you to get hold of a copy of The 1913 Rome Lectures, so look out for Barbara's blog in advance of this session. We will share it in our newsletter the on Sunday 30 April. And if you would like to access other sources about these topics, do feel free to read around!

We hope to see you then.
With our warmest wishes,
