Every two months we will meet virtually and discuss books by Southern California authors and illustrators.

First, we will start with an ice breaker picture book, then continue with a young adult novel or a middle grade novel.

This book club is open to everyone, but space is limited. Priority is given to CLCSC members, then non-members if there is space.

Our first meeting is Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 7:30 pm. You can sign up for the discussion using the form here by August 17, 2021.

Once you have signed up, you should receive the email with the link to the meeting about a day before the book club.

Confirmed book club members will also receive a coupon code to purchase books with 20% off.

We are so excited to be sharing our love of youth literature and hope to see you there!

This book is so fantastically unique and fills a niche for young readers that dearly needed to be filled. This book is about a young tiger who, with the help of her imaginary friend, fights off her nightmares that try to scare her at night. This book is empowering for those kids going through nightmares and wondering what to do.... Empowering, and also utterly delightful! Lovely illustrations and phenomenal storytelling, this book is one of my go-tos. Part graphic novel, part picture book, I absolutely adore Tiger Vs. Nightmare!!
