SBCs for Rising 9th - 12th Graders

2021 Summer Book Clubs for Rising 9 - 12 Graders

Keep your love of great books alive over the summer by joining us for a beautiful set of stories and discussions as we spend the summer with five of our favorite 2022 Nutmeg Nominees!  Be sure to REGISTER for the sessions in advance via Eventbrite.  Tickets for each session are $10; if you are registering more than one participant in the same family, there is a 25% discount per ticket.

If would like to purchase the book, we do request that you purchase it through us, and that you bring your copy with you to the discussion!  You can order these great titles through the links below and pick them up curbside in advance or that day...  

See you soon!  :)

p.s.  We know that it's summer - you don't need to come to ALL of the sessions, but kiddos that participate in two out of the three will receive a little gift certificate from us to keep the reading love flowing!
