Thank you for your interest in the Book Club for Kids podcast.
Most of the books featured on Book Club for Kids are selected by the kids and their teachers or librarians, in consultation with our producer.
The books featured are fiction--usually middle grade fiction, but occasionally gentler YA fiction. (Our readers are generally 5th through 8th graders, with a few exceptions.) We do not cover nonfiction or picture books. We do sometimes discuss graphic novels.
Although we sometimes feature classic titles, most of our books are by living authors because we look for opportunities for our readers to get their author questions answered.
Our readers come from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. Many attend Title 1 schools. We are seeking books that speak to that diversity.
Currently, we do not repeat authors. Please check here to see if your author has already been featured.
If you would like to submit a book for consideration or have additional questions, please email producer Ilsa Setziol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
