One of our most fun (and most favorite) talks yet, given at a homeschool conference last year, on the subject of choosing carefully what we put into our heads: “Jane Austen and Vampires: Examining Girls’ Literary Appetites and Literary Eating Disorders.”
What do handsome heroes, bonnets, and vampires have in common? Not much, but they’re all pieces of the most famous and influential girls’ literature of all time – literature that has revamped the way thousands of young women view reality, the world, themselves, men, and romance. In this audio message, Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin analyze authors from Jane Austen to Janette Oke to Stephanie Meyer, and lay out the basics of choosing a healthy literary diet.
“…something every girl that loves to read should listen to! …a captivating and humorous discussion of what we should be ‘feasting’ on from our libraries. I highly recommend getting this riveting and convicting discussion that motivates every girl to really examine what her bookshelf ‘pantry’ contains. This would actually be a wonderful tool for the whole family as it could pertain to more than just girls and romance novels.” B.C.
“…brilliantly done!! … We have already made a list of people to hand this message out to, and are greatly looking forward to seeing what God will do through it.” K.F.
