Utah Parent Center and the Utah State Board of Education are launching a new book study. When you join you will be sent a free copy of “Grit, the Power of Passion and Perseverance” by Angela Duckworth. We will have three nights of discussions on January 16th, 23rd and 30th from 7 pm to 8 pm. For the discussions, you can join remotely from home. As part of the book study, you will also receive guided notes and discussion questions to help break down the book further. “Grit” has now spent fifteen weeks on the top 20 New York Times Bestseller list.
“You know, you’re no genius!” is a phrase Angela Duckworth heard often from her father as a child. Yet this statement ended up guiding her to a career that changed the way she and countless others would approach intelligence, success and passion. She would discover that the key to success is not talent, but rather grit: persistence in working towards your goals and dreams. She now shares her research with the world in a compelling book that will change the way you and your children approach challenges and overcome them.

Registration for this bookstudy will begin November 1st.
