Community Book Club

Kemper Academy will be hosting a Community Book Club! Join us in a space where we as a community can support one another through shared experiences. All meetings will be held at de Paul School from 6:00-7:00 pm & via zoom. Complimentary to de Paul families and alumni; $20 for the public. However Greater Louisville Education Cooperative will cover this cost for JCPS families with a child with an IEP.


We will be reading The Yes Brain by Daniel J. Seigel, M.D., and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D. In this book, the authors teach us how to strengthen the four fundamentals of the Yes Brain (balance, resilience, insight, and empathy) for our child and provide strategies on how to expand their capacity for positivity.
