Austin Allies Book Club

Austin Allies and BookPeople partner to host a monthly Kids’ Book Club. This free book club is open to all 3rd-8th graders in the greater Austin area and is a great way to support both voracious and reluctant readers.

Our book club selections tackle issues that our children face every day – from struggles in school to bullying to learning to love and accept themselves and others just as they are. The books are typically appropriate for upper elementary and middle school readers (3rd-8th graders.)

We will meet at BookPeople in downtown Austin on the fourth Saturday of each month from 1-2pm for an engaging discussion and book-related activities. Students should borrow or buy a copy of the book and read it before the book club. Our partner, BookPeople, offers a 10% discount on all book club purchases.
