Our TCK Book Club is ready to welcome the new year!

We will gather in the evening to enjoy a nice discussion around Part IV (Chapters 17-19) of Ruth Van Reken, David Pollock and Michael Pollock's book "Third Culture Kids: The experience of growing up among worlds", widely recognized as the Bible of TCK literature.

Please join even if you have not read the first chapters! This evening will be a wonderful opportunity to connect and share our experiences, and hear from one of the authors herself.

Feel free to bring a snack. The event is FREE to attend, but please RSVP below to let us know you are coming and receive the event location.
