Teen BookTalk is a reading group with two strands. The first discusses an eBook sample whilst the 2nd discusses the whole book. Teenagers are encouraged to join one or both strands. It is hoped that reluctant readers, who would be put off by having to read a whole book will be encouraged to get involved. You can find the first episodes online.

To tie-in with the launch of the Children’s Library Black History Month writing competition, the first episode is Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. Find out more about the writing competition.

If they have read, or are interested in reading The Hate U Give By Angie Thomas, The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks , Internment by Samira Ahmed , or A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge, are aged 13 to 17, and would like to take part in future episodes, email the library at enquiries@libraryofbirmingham.com and put Teen Booktalk in the subject line.
