Advance Reader's Copy (ARC) Club (s)

The Fall 2018 ARC Club is a 4-month program, 1 meeting per month, and includes a food allergy friendly snack. Advance Reader's Copies (ARC's) are books made available to book stores for review and marketing purposes before the title has been actually been published.  A minimum of 2 books per month will be distributed to preview, and students are invited to a private meet & greet with any authors that visit the shop during the designated session.

There are 3 ARC Clubs for the fall: Elementary (3rd - 4th/5th*), Middle Grade (5th*/6th-7th) and a TEEN group for grades 8 & up.

Space is limited to 10 students per group.

*5th grade – Select either the Elementary or MG time to best fit the child’s reading & comfort level.  Middle grade group will have more adult themed titles available.
