Please join us for our first book club event! This event will be an initial meet and greet where we will go through how the book club will work, get to know each other, and take a peek at the scheduled books. So even if you have not had a chance to read this month's book, we would love to have you!
We will start 2021 Book Club with Untamed by Glennon Doyle. Details about the book are at the bottom of this email.
We are very excited to partner with our local bookstore: Copperfields! They are going to support our discussions and offer NMC Book Club Members an upgraded discount of 20%! If possible, please consider heading down to Novato Copperfields to pick up this month's selection.
Going forward, the book club will read a new book every 3 months. Mama paced!
Untamed by Glennon Doyle:
For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. But she soon realized they had come to her from within. This was her own voice—the one she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the world’s expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living.
Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say:There She Is.
Untamed shows us how to be brave.
Join us as we make our very own delicious pizzas!
We will be making kids' size pizza kits - including dough, sauce, cheese, and a choice of extra topping. Kits will be picked up from Village Pizzeria and then we will get together for a pizza making class via zoom.
Registration via this invitation will provide you with the zoom link to join in on our virtual party, starting at 5:00 pm.
To order your pizza kits, each family will call Village Pizzeria directly at 415-898-2234. Please mention the NMC Pizza Party when ordering to receive a discounted rate as NMC will subsidize half of the cost. Cost to member will be $5 per pizza kit - discount applied to up to two kits per family. If needed, additional kits can be ordered for $10.
Kits can be picked up from Village Pizzeria (1200 Grant Ave.) on January 25 between 11:00 am - 8:00 pm. There is street and parking-lot parking available. If you would like curbside delivery, please call the restaurant to arrange.
The first half hour will include social time, before we get cooking at 5:30 for dinner on the table between 6 and 6:30pm.

Board Meeting Time!!
Please review the agenda draft (will be updated before the meeting). Email the co-directors at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to add to the agenda.
Although board meetings are focused on getting the 'work' done that makes everything happen, we start with a little bit of social time, and members are welcome to come along to find out everything that we have in the works!
Sheltering in Place with little ones is hard. Let's keep our network strong! Our special membership discount has been extended through the end of March, for both new and existing members.

Would you like to extend your existing membership at a discount? Here you go! If you’re a current member and you’d like to extend your membership at the special rate, you can! Regardless of when your renewal date is (even if you just renewed!), you can take advantage of this deal, and an extra year will be applied to your account.
Of course, new members are welcome as well. If you are not yet a member of Novato Mothers Club, here's a discount to get you started. New members need to go to the "join us" link at the top of our website to enroll. You will get the $35 rate if you sign up by March 31, 2021 :)
