Book Club for Kids

Designed for middle school readers, the award-winning podcast Book Club for Kids is loved by students and librarians alike. Launched as a radio talk show segment in 2000 and revamped into a podcast in 2015, the show has a longstanding tradition of bringing listeners the best of the book world. Kitty Felde, a journalist and author, hosts the podcast. She is joined by students and fellow writers, who spend approximately 20 minutes exploring their favorite books and discussing other literary topics. To date, the podcast has more than 100 episodes, which listeners can enjoy at the link above or on their preferred streaming platform. Select episodes are accompanied by listening guides (available on the Curriculum page), which provide discussion questions, activities, and further readings. These guides are great for educators or caregivers looking for ways to further conversations started by many of the featured books. Book Club for Kids is funded by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the Nora Roberts Foundation, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and Capitol Hill Community Foundation.
