Introducing The Bookish Society

The Bookish Society offers live online literature, art, and creative writing classes for homeschooling families. We are committed to inspiring a passion for reading and providing quality instruction in children’s and young adult literature, as well as free expression in the creative arts.

Our Approach

We embrace a Modern Classical approach to homeschool learning. Our Literature Circles are lively, seminar-style discussions driven by students with the expert guidance of a teacher. Our art and creative writing classes respect the students’ creative autonomy and the power of peer collaboration.

The Bookish Society

What Families Are Saying

“Bookish Society’s Roundtables are our best online socialization option. My daughter loves the friends she has made.”

“Getting Muhammad to write used to be like pulling teeth. Now, I have to pry him off working on the world-building story to come to do other work. A great problem to have, thanks to you.”

-Bonnie S.

“The Bookish Society is incredible. Incredible selection of books that exposes kids to diverse authors, topics, and genres! The book club meetups themselves allow plenty of time to discuss the book and to allow the kids some great fun time together.

“The Bookish Society was a highlight of our Covid Homeschool year, and we have decided to keep up even with a return to public school. Thank you so much.”

-Kristin & Lexie

“Jenn finds the most amazing and diverse books for kids of all ages to read! As a parent, I even love the books (who knew contemporary middle grade and young adult lit was so awesome!). Both of my kids love their time in Jenn’s ‘classes.’ I say ‘classes’ because it’s not super academic in feel but it’s more than just a casual book club. Bookish is a community of book lovers who get to socialize while they are learning. We are really looking forward to this school year reading ALL the books.”

“My son joined The Bookish Society because he was struggling with isolation and reading comprehension. I’ve followed Jenn’s homeschool advice several times since 2020, and she’s become an invaluable figure in my life as well as my son’s.

“When we decided to return to brick and mortar school this fall, we stayed enrolled in The Bookish Society. My son didn’t want to leave his teacher or his friends, and we weren’t willing to sacrifice the gains we saw in his reading while working with Jenn.

“We recently found out that his reading and science skills tested above average this year. I attribute this to The Bookish Society and Jenn’s hard work. She’s always managed to think of him when selecting books and encourage his interests and skills along. We also love listening to The Bookish Society podcast in the car and at bedtime.”
