8 June 2012 / 0 Comments
We have teamed up with Pan Macmillan to search for a group of enthusiastic reading group members to take part in an exciting new reading group panel where you'll get to meet authors and editors, visit Pan Macmillan HQ, receive plenty of free books and contribute to reading group material for four perfect reading group reads.
The panel was inspired by Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt, a startling debut novel and the first book chosen for the panel
Selected panel members will be invited to attend a lunch, tea or cocktail event with the author of each quarter's chosen book and will receive early reading copies, as well as another two free books a month, for one year, from across the Pan Macmillan lists. You'll come to the Pan Macmillan offices four times over twelve months to meet editors and discuss the quarter's choice and contribute to reading group materials to be used in books, online and in packs sent out to reading groups around the country. The panel's journey will also be documented on Reading Groups for Everyone.
Apply to be a member of the panel
Readers can apply to be a member of the panel by filling in this form.
As an incentive, we are offering the first 20 readers who apply, a free reading group set of Tell the Wolves I'm Home.
The deadline for entries is 6 August 2012 and the first panel meeting will take place in September 2012.
We are committed to involving reading groups to ensure reading group material is just right for books like Tell the Wolves I'm Home so co-creating it with members of those very reading groups is an exciting opportunity for readers to work closely with a leading publisher.
About the book
Tell the Wolves I'm Home is a brilliantly accomplished book about fourteen-year-old June Elbus, left devastated by the loss of her beloved Uncle to an AIDS-related illness in 1980's New York. A tender story of love lost and found, it is an unforgettable portrait of how compassion can make us whole again.

Carol Rifka Brunt said, 'I love the idea of reading groups. There's something almost magical about people choosing to unplug for the night and gather round cups of tea and glasses of wine to talk about books. I am touched and amazed that Macmillan have chosen Tell the Wolves I'm Home as the book to launch its reading groups panel - a chance for book group people all over the country to have their say directly to the publisher. I can't wait to meet readers, answer questions and hopefully open a little window onto the writing process.'
