Face-to-Face: A Middle Readers Book Group

Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 11:30am

"When we read together, we connect. Together, we see the world. Together, we see one another." —Kate DiCamillo

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 Club 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 group. 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!)

The first selection for March 2014 is From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. In our first meeting, we'll discuss E. L.  Konigsburg's classic, talk about our favorite books and the kinds of titles we want to read together, and pick our third book!

Our thanks to Simon & Schuster for donating copies of this month's book. Purchase a copy of From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg from Housing Works Bookstore Cafe before the first meeting, or borrow a copy from the NYPL Mulberry branch down the street. 

Second meeting: 

Sunday, April 6th at 11:30 am
