We are seeing the rise and rise of teen literature, with a variety of genres and a plethora of brilliant authors. But how do we find more to read? What should we be avoiding? And which book handles issues the best? Bookclubs have always been the heart of the book industry, the word of mouth that has given authors the boost needed to become famous. And we know teens love to read: the superstardom of authors who write for teens and young adults proves it.
With this in mind, we are beginning our online Teen Book Club! To start, we will get together on Twitter every fortnight to share and discuss great teen and young adult reads. Based on the success of the first few, we will plot a course for tweet-ups at stores and other book-related events.
So whether you are a reader, blogger, author or publisher, we would love it if you could join us with the hashtag #EBTeenReads live from 2pm – 4pm Wednesday 18th of September.
Again, this is a project just taking flight, so let’s see where it takes us and hopefully it’ll be the greatest online bookclub!
