Featured Book Clubs

We’re proud of the diverse selection of book clubs featured in The Kids’ Book Club Book, including school and library groups, groups that meet in living rooms, community centers, and churches, and many more.  These groups described to us their book club experiences, and their creative discussion ideas, recipes, and activities ultimately enlivened the pages of our book.

You can learn more about some of the groups below through their websites. If you are a member of the media and would like to get in touch with a representative of a local book club, please contact us. You can read more about the book clubs in our book on our media page.
           
We love discovering new book clubs – either newly formed groups, or ones that have been around the block.  If you’re a member of a book club, please take a moment to tell us about your group.
