We discuss our work, what we’re reading, things we’ve learned, and pick each other’s brains about the different challenges we face in our work. We also host monthly classes or workshops with occasional guest speakers. For more information, email Sarah at sthompson@roanoketexas.com. You can also join our new Facebook group.
