Community Book Clubs

Starting a book club is an excellent way to strengthen literacy and build writing skills, as well as build cultural access through reading.

With professional instruction from a teaching-artist our book clubs engage in a literary “call and response” by reading, discussing, and engaging participants in creative writing assignments based on the reading selection. An emphasis is placed on reading comprehension, as well as creative and expository writing.

We coordinate the reading selection with clients to reflect the cultural focus of the participants to best meet their literary needs. This fee-based program includes a minimum of eight sessions, and a maximum of fifteen participants. Books are provided. CBOs offer many important community-based arts programs but frequently relegate reading to the margins of its programs.


The Literary Freedom Project places books in the center of culture-based reading and creative writing.

The Literary Freedom Project believes that cultural identity is a fundamental cornerstone in the development of smart, creative, and focused communities. These qualities, on which families and neighborhoods are sustained and strengthened, are honed, in part, through a mix immersive reading –academic, vocational, and pleasure.
