The Enchanted Hour
August 22 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$20
Join Calgary Reads for an intimate evening with Meghan Cox Gurdon, the internationally-known children’s book critic and author of The Enchanted Hour, The Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction.
The Enchanted Hour (Harper) is a conversation-changing look at how reading aloud makes adults and children smarter, happier, healthier, more successful and more closely attached, even as technology pulls in the other direction. Meghan Cox Gurdon’s influential weekly column in the Wall Street Journal, which began running in 2005, reaches more than 2 million readers each week. Her print and radio work has run in numerous outlets, such as the San Francisco Chronicle, the Washington Post, and the National Review. A mother of five, she’s a true advocate for reading aloud, and how the power of reading with your children can transform their lives.
