Homebound Free Online Conference March 23-27 (& replays)

March 26, 2020 12:07 PM | Linda Zanieski (Administrator)

From the Brave Writer website . . .

Homebound 2020: Hosted by Julie Bogart and Susan Wise Bauer

Presented by Brave Writer and The Well-Trained Mind

We invite you to join us and our friends for a FREE Online Homeschool and "Suddenly-at-Home" School Conference. Since you are home, we want to fill that time with nourishment and growth, so when you burst forth into the world again, you are full of confidence and resources.

During the entire week of March 23-27, we are offering free webinar events for your children and for you. 

You will need to register for each webinar but there is NO FEE.

Webinars can hold up to 3000 live attendees. 

We will make all replays available TO EVERYONE (registration not necessary for replay) on this page as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours.

We would love you to get the word out to your friends and family!

Our hope is that you will gain renewed courage and energy for the challenging task at hand: educating your children during this unusual season in our global history.

Fondly, Julie and Susan
