Sun Valley Community School Parents’ Association will host a virtual book discussion via Zoom with New York Times best-selling author Jessica Lahey. The discussion kicks off the Parents’ Association’s inaugural Book + Speaker Series. This event is free and open to the community. Guests are encouraged (but not necessary) to read Lahey’s best-selling book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed in advance of the discussion which will include a chance to hear the author speak about the book and ask questions.

Guests can go to for the Zoom link to join the meeting. The Book + Speaker Series is a new program offered by the Parents’ Association. Future author discussions will include authors Laura Markham (February 18) and Dr. Michele Borba (April 29).
