Book Club Program Opportunity !

We are in the process of looking for Boys and Girls who would love to be a part of our Book Club Program:  We are looking for Youth ages 8-16. The purpose of our Book Club program is to promote literacy within the youth of the Los Angeles community. Each age group meets once a week to discuss their current book. The discussions are informal with the focal point being the likes and dislikes of that week’s reading and how they can relate to the characters and what they’re experiencing in the book. Participants will also work on art/projects related to the book, and have an opportunity to Skype with the author at the end of the book.
For more information about the Book Club, please e-mail the foundation at:
