The Tween Book Club is specifically designed for our readers in upper elementary school to middle school, who read books from both our Middle Reader and Young Adult sections. Books will begin to address issues relating to puberty, transitions, and crushes without veering into the more mature, teen-related content found in the Young Adult section. We’ll have snacks for all!
July's selection is New Kid by Jerry Craft.
This book club is open to anyone who wants to join the discussion. Parents can sign up here to be notified of upcoming meetings for this book club. Learn more about all of East City Bookshop’s book clubs here.
This July the Tween Book Club will be joined by author Anna Meriano. Earlier this year the Tween Book Club enjoyed reading Anna Meriano's book Love Sugar Magic: A Dash of Trouble. If you are a fan of magic, baking and fun family stories, join Anna Meriano and our tweens to hear more about the sequel A Sprinkle of Spirits!
Anna Meriano is the author of the Love Sugar Magic series, which has received starred reviews from Kirkus, School Library Journal, and Shelf Awareness. She grew up in Houston, Texas, graduated from Rice University with a degree in English, and earned her MFA in writing for children from the New School. Anna works as a tutor and part time teacher with Writers in the Schools, a Houston nonprofit that brings creative writing instruction into public schools. In her free time, she likes to knit, study American Sign Language, and play full-contact quidditch.
