I am pleased to announce the arrival of TLC2!
Wouldn’t you know it? Timeline of Classics (the second edition) hit the presses the very same week I visited IEW’s home base for a week of training!
Not only was I overwhelmed by the beauty of eastern Oklahoma, but I could hardly contain my excitement.
This was the first time I had seen the facility where my chronological book list is being published!
Podcast #36 – Featuring Timeline of Classics
I hope you enjoy this brief overview of Timeline of Classics: Historical Context for the Good and Great Books! Here are a few highlights from our podcast:
- what this resource is and why it’s no ordinary book list
- why it is an important resource for classical educators, classroom teachers, and schooling families
- who can use it
- what’s new with the second edition of TLC
For a sneak peak at our reference guide, have a look at sample pages from Timeline of Classics.
During our conversation, Andrew suggested that we could subtitle Timeline of Classics: “A Young Mother’s Guide to the Library.”
With those seven words, he captured the entire essence of TLC!
