Author to share home-schooling experience

Gail Nagasako, Maui author of “Homeschooling: Why and How,” will offer a free program at two Maui public libraries this month.

The first one-hour program will take place at 3 p.m. Saturday at Kihei Public Library. The second program will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Kahului Public Library.

Nagasako, who has more than 20 years of experience as a home-school support group leader and counselor and is the mother of a now-grown home-schooled son, will share information about home schooling and why home schooling may be beneficial.

Nagasako will discuss topics presented in her book such as academics, curricula, college and socialization. A question-and-answer session will be included.

Contact the hosting libraries as soon as possible if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed, or for more information.
