Book Jam: Super Fun Book Groups for Kids!

Does your child love to read? Or maybe you wish they would read more often? Encourage your child’s love of reading by signing them up for a Book Jam, specially
curated book discussion groups for elementary and middle school students. Kids who sign up for a Jam enjoy a five-week program that meets every week for an hour. Each session promotes small-group conversation, critical thinking, love of reading, and more. Book Jams can meet virtually over Zoom or outside—weather
permitting—at a safe social distance. Just gather your child’s favorite pals (groups of five or more) and sign up to get your Jam started! For questions and signups,
contact Marilyn Kitzes at 917-676-4461.
