Got Book Club?

Author Mayra Calvani has put together a book on how to start and run a book club... for young readers. Some of the comments about it:

"How to Turn Your Book Club into a Spectacular Event, by Mayra Calvani, speaks directly to kids who love to read and who want to share their favorite books with friends." --The Story of a Writer

"HOW TO TURN YOUR BOOK CLUB INTO A SPECTACULAR EVENT is packed with great ideas on making this happen. From ideas of what to call your book club to brainstorming questions to ask, this is a must have book if you're serious about having a successful club." --YABooks Central

"From beginning to end, How to Turn Your Book Club Into a Spectacular Event is a great guide for those children who want to take the initiative and create a book club. It provides all the information needed, and even a breakdown of book genres, along with examples of books. And, it ends with a list of popular authors who write for young readers, including the title of one of their books. Any book that helps guide children on the reading path, and encourages them to read is a book that should be recommended. How to Turn Your Book Club Into a Spectacular Event is one such book." --Writing for Children and More

One of the "popular authors" mentioned in that last quote... also happens to be me...

It's a great idea to encourage kids to read, especially to read in PACKS, to tell others that they like reading - and a MG/YA book club would seem to have an embarrassment of riches to choose from, given the explosion in the YA literature genre of recent times. If you're a kid who likes to read, or knows one, this might be a cool present - and one that could lead to pretty good times. Some salient details:
