Sign up your students to connect online with other 11 to 19-year-olds from state schools and colleges for our shared virtual Book Club in partnership with Penguin.
During our live events on Wednesdays 3.30-4.30pm over four weeks, we cover three key elements:
Share a reading experience
Read the same book at the same pace and discuss in small breakouts online at home, or with their peers in school or college.
Hear from award-winning authors
Gain insights and advice from authors, illustrators, publishers and literary agents – as well as speakers with a passion for reading or links to the book. The final week Q+A session will be with the author of the book we are reading!
Skill up and become published
Grow in skills and confidence to produce a creative writing or art piece. The best entries will win exclusive prizes and be published in our first of a kind Virtual Library and Exhibition.
