Keeping a bookgroup alive for kids can be difficult, but its not impossible! I like to keep my finger on the pulse of what’s out there, and now I’ve just heard of the latest bookgroup for the literary kiddos. Take note, parents of NYC! One of these days I’ll do a round-up of all the bookgroups open to the public that I know of. For now . . .
Face-to-Face: A Middle Readers Book Group
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is proud to offer our newest book group, and our first one for young readers! Face-to-Face: A Middle Readers Book Group is a monthly reading group for kids ages 8-12. Explore the world of books outside of school, meet fellow readers, and discover new titles and authors. All members of the group will help pick the books we read and determine the direction of the club. Come early or stay late to grab a treat in the cafe and browse the shelves. (Special 10% discount on Children’s and Young Adult books for reading club members!)
