YOUTH BOOK CLUBS

We support the entire spectrum of the development of the child, from 6months of age to 18 years old. In addition to our book clubs, we host events that supports the whole child, family, and community. 

 

Representation is important.

Family is important.

Resources are important.

 

In order to fill the gap as it relates to the lack of diversity in book publicity, Burst Into Books spotlights books and authors of color.


We partner with diverse authors, venues, park districts, libraries and the community to host a wide array of family events such as Juneteenth Celebration, Family & Educators’ Night, and Black Literature & Culture Festivals.
