When Bill Gates places a book title in his top five for the entire year, people sit up and notice. And they take advantage of opportunities to learn more, as when Diane Tavenner comes to Crowell Public Library to discuss Prepared: What Kids Need for a Fulfilled Life. “Preparing our kids for college, a career, and life is a long journey,” Gates writes. “Diane has written a wonderful guidebook to help all of us make the most of the adventure.”* Because of the significance of this title, Crowell Library will offer Tavenner’s program at two different times on Wednesday, January 29: 9:00 am and 7:00 pm, so that working parents and stay-at-home parents can all benefit from Tavenner’s expertise. The program will be moderated by Beyond the Book’s Julie Lin.

Diane Tavenner is the cofounder and CEO of Summit Public Schools, one of America’s most innovative public school networks. Gates visited a Summit school several years ago and was “blown away” by his experience there. In Prepared, Tavenner explains the philosophies on which her schools are built: self-directed learning, project-based learning and mentoring. She shares a blueprint for how parents can stop worrying about their children’s future and start helping them prepare for it. She will give tips on what students need to succeed in college, thrive in the workplace and lead confident fulfilled lives. Tavenner has worked as a school teacher, administrator and leader in traditional public schools throughout California. She has an undergrad degree in psychology and sociology from USC and a master’s in administration and policy from Stanford University.

Beyond the Book with Julie has been bringing book authors into homes and businesses for over two years. Authors such as Julie Morgenstern, Drs. Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, have sat down with Julie for interviews about the journeys that brought them to write books and how they hope to inspire, educate and make real differences in people’s lives. Julie Lin, born and raised in Southern California and a graduate of San Marino High School and USC, has worked as a morning news anchor, producer and show host for a CBS affiliate.
