Online Bookclub
for Teens

Weekly online book clubs are created to help you develop your passion for reading, study, reasoning, and communicating, guided by world-class teachers in small discussion groups.

Books can bring strangers together

Reading increases our ability to understand and express our own identity, while also providing ownership for our own perspective. As club members, you will establish connections to books together and gain a better insight into the world view of others. You will open the path to start new friendships.
Join our community
When you join a book club community you are dedicated to becoming a life long learner.
Make new Friends
One of the best ways to meet others is to find hobby you are passionate about. Passion for reading or even a passion for exploring a particular kind of book.
Reflect Together
Open conversations with world-class authors, entrepreneurs or artists to help you find and develop your superpowers.
Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting.
Edmund Burke

"Books are something social - a writer speaking to a reader - so I think making the reading of a book the center of a social event, the meeting of a book club, is a brilliant idea."
Yann Martel
