Welcome to Book Talk, the official Scholastic Book Clubs Blog! We are so lucky to do what we love best—read and discuss children’s books! This blog will celebrate books and reading as well as be a resource for parents and teachers. You can look forward to editorial recommendations, previews of upcoming books (and upcoming $1 books—we can hear the oohing and ahhing), exclusive Book Club promotions, reading tips, and some things that we just think are fun, like movie reviews, book trailers, and exciting books that we are talking about in the office. We will have guest posts from book lovers outside of Scholastic (authors, teachers, bloggers, librarians, etc.) in addition to all of the brilliant prose and musings of the Scholastic Book Clubs staff.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get Book Talk’n.
Meet the awesome Book Talk crew:
Erin is a Promotions Manager for Book Clubs who can’t get enough of YA literature. She can usually be found reading, blogging, or finding new uses for sillybands.
Trevor is an Editor for Book Clubs and is currently addicted to steampunk fiction. In addition to working on Book Talk, he tweets on behalf of Book Clubs @scholastic.
Preeti can a read a book faster than you can sneeze – that being said, she is an Editor for the younger level picture books and easy readers. This does not stop her from loving YA novels more than society might like her to.
Ben is the Production Manager for Book Clubs Online. He’s originally from a hyphenated town in Pennsylvania and has a cat named Crouton (although he’s really more of a dog person).
Kym is a Project Manager for Book Clubs Online and thanks Anne of Green Gables for changing her life. She owns more books than clothes, and hopes to have her own library one day.
Jennifer is in Creative and Strategic Direction for Book Clubs and has an obsession with all things fruit (send her some mangos if you ever need to appease her). Her formative Halloween years were spent alternating among the Disney princesses—particularly Snow White, Ariel, Belle, and Jasmine—before she took a turn and dressed up as Scarlet O’Hara.
We can’t wait to start discussing all thing children’s books with you guys. What would you like to see from Book Talk?
