Since 1981 the Cooperative Children's Book Center has offered monthly discussions of newly published trade books for children and young adults. The meetings are open to any adult who wishes to read books in advance and participate in the discussion.

We welcome any interested adults to our CCBC book discussions. Please do read at least one or two books on the list if you plan to attend. If you have questions or would like more information, please call 608-263-3720 or email CCBCinfo@education.wisc.edu.

The books on this discussion list are not necessarily recommended by the CCBC. For a list of new titles that are recommended by the CCBC staff, please see our Book of the Week or use the Quick Search feature on our web site.

Future CCBC Book Discussion Dates: April 15 and May 13.
