New Group for Teens: Books & Bites

books & bites
Brookline Village


Teens in grades seven through twelve are invited to join the Teen Librarian for a casual chat about reading, authors, and the best stories they’ve ever read!
This is not a traditional book club—no reading assigned! Instead, we are gathering together to recommend titles, authors, and our favorite stories in all kinds of media. The only rule: if you want a snack, you have to recommend a title or author and listen to everyone else’s recommendations.
