Reading Groups for Everyone is one of The Reading Agency’s programmes, run in partnership with the Society of Chief Librarians.
Here we celebrate and share all the great things that reading groups and book clubs offer. You can find your nearest reading group, search for your next title to read and take advantage of free promotions, competitions and visits from authors.
We’ve also got resources on how to set up a reading group, advice on running events and tips on how to work with children and young people.
The New Woman by Charity Norman will be featured on the Radio 2 Book Club on Monday 27 July. The book was selected with the help of a panel made up of Reading Agency and library staff from across the UK. We have an exclusive extract available for you to read as well as some discussion questions for your reading group.
The themes in The Great Outdoors Chatterbooks activity pack include outdoor activities and adventures: gardening, camping, hiking, sport, picnics; nature and wildlife; exploring new places and environments; enjoying, sharing and making the most of the world we live in. Something fun for everyone!
For the next two weeks we are running a campaign to celebrate teen reading groups and bringing you lots of great free offers from publishers. We know the great things that happen when teenagers come together to talk about and share reading but we’re not sure enough other people do – hence our campaign.
