Program: The Nonnie Series

Susan Priest introduced Mary Jo Podgurski as speaker
            Pleased to introduce for 2 reasons
  • Mary Jo has a gift for communicating with kids
  • Taking note of Alice Burroughs as collaborative artist (they’ve been doing it for 20 years)
Mary Jo started the Nonnie series in 2014 which is about the time she earned the title, Nonnie.
She works on the premise that all people have a lot of good in them, which generates her guideline of respect for others, listening, honoring diversity and avoiding judgment amongst other things
The Nonnie series is meant to take on tough subjects from the eyes of children, and Alice provides the illustrations
Mary Jo started the discussion by having club members read a series of cards that depicted questions that are asked by kids in grades 1 – 9.  The various answers were striking in their diversity.
The series addresses such topics as sex, death, coping with loss, birth, puberty, race and disabilities. Google “the nonnie series” to learn more and order on amazon or see the Facebook page

Shirley Moore won the raffle for one of the books from the series.
