Not your average book club!

Advance Reading Copies are books that haven’t even been published yet. At the Teen Advance Readers’ club, you’ll have the chance to read and review brand new teen books that haven’t even hit the shelves!

You’ll get an exclusive sneak peek at unpublished teen fiction, then choose a book to take home and review. At the next meeting, we’ll discuss the books, with snacks of course, and do it all over again!

Don’t miss your chance to READ IT FIRST!

Calling all aspiring novelists, poets, screenwriters, and journalists!

The Teen Writer’s Group is a place where young writers can develop their skills, set aside dedicated time for writing, and get ideas from other teen authors. Each session will involve learning and practicing a writing skill and time to work on your own writing projects. Please bring something to write on (a notebook, laptop, or tablet work great). Snacks (and inspiration!) provided. 

This group is for teens who are in high school (grades 8-12).  Questions? Email Jessie, the Teen Engagement Librarian, at hawkesj@nvdpl.ca.
