    Super excited to listen to your talk tomorrow, Mrs. Nicholson! I can never hear too much about literature, especially from such an awesome teacher! I pray your family may have many blessings during this conference and always!

      Thank you, Maggie! I hope you enjoy it! (Also, though you’re in the heady post-graduation period of existence, Jane Austen II is now freshly in recorded at HC!)

    After listening to your wonderful 2020 CHC talk, I knew that I would begin this year’s conference with you, and you did not disappoint! Thank you for your witty, intelligent and heartfelt discussion on discerning good literature. Please do more conferences on Catholic topics because you are an amazing and articulate role model for us all!

      I am so flattered! Thank you so much! I don’t remember if I properly gave credit, but I am basically operating from the framework my mother developed when she homeschooled my five brothers and me. She’s also the one who introduced me to homeschool conferences. The first time I attended one as a parent, I dragged her along as a guide so I could handle the pressure of choosing books and curricula (in those subjects for which I had not yet exerted my “only daughter” privilege and appropriated all of HER books).

    Thank you so much for a wonderful talk, again! I loved your talk last year and was so excited to see you had returned! Although, I had to do some MAJOR introspection from your comments about the Harry Potter series. 😉
    You also sparked late night discussion with my husband about children’s lit, YA (bleh), and fiction in general and when to let the kids read certain materials. The outcome of that discussion was that we both really want to reread a lot of our favourite authors and series to share them with our kids. Thank you for sharing your passion as well as your wisdom!
