About the Event

This month, we are reading Don't Call Me Ishmael by Michael Bauer.

There’s no easy way to put this, so I’ll say it straight out. It’s time I faced up to the truth. I’m fourteen years old and I have Ishmael Leseur’s Syndrome. There is no cure. But that won’t stop Ishmael and his intrepid band of misfits from taking on bullies, bugs, babes, the Beatles, debating, and the great white whale in the toughest, the weirdest, the most humiliatingly awful, and the best year of their lives.

We ask that participants in Teen Book Club please have a go at reading the book before the session and bring a few ideas to share! Ally, our Kids Manager will then lead a discussion about the novel, including its themes, characters and plot.

Book Clubs at Better Read Kids are free of charge. We simply ask that you RSVP here on the website so that we know how many people to expect (and can provide drinks and snacks accordingly)!

We can't wait to see you there.
