Housing Works’ New Book Group for Middle Grade Kids

Housing Works, a terrific NYC organization that “provides housing, medical, prevention, support services” does all sorts of out-of-the-box things. One of their latest is “Face-to-Face: A Middle Readers Book Group.” Here’s the scoop:

When we read together, we connect. Together, we see the world. Together, we see one another.” –Kate DiCamillo
Face-to-Face: A Middle Readers Book Group
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 Group 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 club. 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!)
Join us:

In our first meeting, we’ll discuss Konigsburg’s classic, talk about our favorite books and the kinds of titles we want to read together, and pick our third 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.
