Do you want to read something new? Really new? Not-even-available-to-the-public new? Then join Red Balloon Bookshop’s Teens Read book club, open to teens in 7th-12th grade! Every month, each teen participant will select one Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of an upcoming book, write a short review, and come back the next month to talk about it. Other opportunities include planning author events and book parties, volunteering at the store, blogging, and more. Come to hang with friends, eat snacks, and discover your next favorite book!
Teens Read meets every 3rd Monday at 6:30 pm. Questions? Call Red Balloon at 651-224-8320 or email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Update: Teens Read Book Club is currently full, but please call or email to join the waiting list!
Thursday, Dec 18, 6:30 pm
Chapter & Verse is a national book club for children’s literature enthusiasts who wish to discuss children’s and young adult fiction, nonfiction, picture books, and poetry. They meet the third Thursday of every month at Red Balloon and are sponsored by Winding Oak. In December, we'll discuss two books about leaving home: I Remember Beirut by Zeina Abirached and The Turtle of Oman by Naomi Shihab Nye. What does it mean to leave the only home you've known? To leave your city? Your country? Do you have favorite books to share with your discussion group with a related theme? Please share them with the group!
