TeenLAB: Browsers Teen Reading and Discussion Group


Calling all teen readers, middle schoolers and highscoolers alike! Please join us at the bookshop where we host a bi-monthly reading and discussion group for teens during the summer.

Who We Are:
The Teen Literary Advisory Board (TeenLAB) is a group of teen readers who help curate the Young Adult (YA) and Middle Reader section of the bookstore. Under the guidance of booksellers and YA authors, TeenLAB members will read books, usually new or forthcoming titles, and write reviews on shelf cards that are displayed in store and serve as recommendations for customers.

What We Do:
TeenLAB members can expect to check out forthcoming titles of their choice from the Browsers ARC (Advanced Release Copy) library at the meetings. During the meetings teens will participate in an active discussion about the book they chose to read: sharing major themes, compelling characters, and issues raised in their books of choice. Additionally, teens will have time to write a short review on a "Teen Pick" shelf talker card, which will live on our book cases for a season.

TeenLAB is a great place for teens to become familiar with new book publications, deepen their skills in conversing about something they read, and have fun writing a review that will captivate a potential reader at the shop. This is a unique reading and discussion group because it offers YOU a chance to have an impact on what books make it to our shelves each season!

TeenLAB members must fill out an application and bring it to their first meeting (found at the bottom of this event listing). Members will commit to reading a certain number of books to participate.
