Book Club for Kids podcast, a project of Community Partners

    LA is the Best Place for Bookworms! Creating Lifelong Readers With Digital Media

    We want to engage the next generation of LA readers. We’ll take the free podcast to 3-5 public schools or libraries every month. At least half of the tapings will be in front of a live audience, which will be invited to participate on the show by talking about their favorite book. We will focus on local authors who are available for book signings, and we’ll invite local public officials and influencers to be celebrity readers. Curriculum will be developed for episodes, also available for free. Episodes will be branded LA2050 episodes.
