National Teen Book Club will be taking place from 15th June – 6th July 2022
Over four weeks, young people will connect online from home, or from school or college with an educator, for our weekly event every Wednesday, 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
Our featured book is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl’s struggle for justice. The book deals with themes that will be familiar to young adults and their teachers and provides a stimulus for exploration of challenging topics. Teachers can sign-up their groups aged 11-19 now via this form.
