Deep Blue Readers is a monthly book club aimed at youth who read avidly from books found on the Intermediate or “Middle Grades” shelf. While there is no fixed age limit, our readers typically are in grades 4 – 7 and ready for titles that appear on the American Library Association’s (ALA) Newbery Medal and Honor list. What we share is a love of great books and the excitement of diving deeper into a good story.
Attendance is as your schedule permits, and newcomers are welcome at any time. Check back for upcoming selections and Readers’ Choice themes. Teachers and parents are welcome to dive, too!
Planning your first dive? Send us a message so we know to watch for and welcome newcomers. You can email us with questions, book reviews, or requests.
Volunteer Dive Leaders and book club founders Daphne and Margaret are Stillwater parents and life-long, self-professed avid readers who saw a community opportunity to bring enthusiastic Middle Grade readers together for reviews, recommendations, and building connections with each other through books.
