Teen Readers Council

The Teen Readers Council is a volunteer program for Los Angeles teens, grades 9-12, at Children’s Book World that gives them the opportunity to participate in and influence the teen programming at the bookstore. Members will have the opportunity to read advance reader copies of yet-to-be released books, write book reviews for the council’s blog, and will be able to interact with their peers in helping to make Children’s Book World a great resource for teens. For more information and for any questions emails us at cbwreaderscouncil@gmail.com.

How much time will it involve?
Members will attend one hour long meeting the first Tuesday of every month and will read at least one book and write one review due by the end of each month.
