Back to projects

Teen Book Fiends/Fanatics is a collaborative literacy-based project between Danforth and Ed Smith 7th and 8th graders. We are going to read, discuss and respond to YA (young adult) literature all year. Most of the books we will read are by authors who will be at our culminating event, a trip to Teen Book Fest at Nazareth College in May. In order to build community between the two groups and build students’ knowledge of resources and opportunities within the city that relate to learning and literature, the group will have face-to-face and in person meetings. Two of these meetings will be held at each other’s schools with the other two to be held at community locations. All meetings will focus around discussion of texts and various ways to interact with and respond to literature.
