Hope's journey in "Lab Girl" explores how plants nurture themselves, but often describes a work schedule that leaves her unable to spend time nourishing herself. Hope describes a situation where finding work-life balance is complicated, which is a problem with which many readers identify. In this series of four meetings, we'll explore and discuss methods of self-directed wellness. Each session will start with an assessment of where we're at with self-care. The library will provide journals where you can explore the challenges. Each week we will come together to discuss our findings and relate them back to “Lab Girl.” Pick up a free journal at any library branch and join us on Thursdays at noon in October.
