Join author Blake Boles in a talk about self-directed education. This event is open to all, but especially aimed at parents and families who are thinking differently about education – but may still have some questions about how a self-directed, alternative approach to learning actually works. There will be something for everyone – whether you’re skeptical about alternative education options, or if your family is already walking the walk! Topics examined will include cultural beliefs around college, entering the professional class, and adult management of youth’s time and experiences; the consequences of these beliefs; and how to rethink, re-prioritize, and RELAX! Suggested donation: $20
