rgz manifesta


Just so you know, here's our official readergirlz manifesta: what we stand for, what we believe, what we promise YOU:

* readergirlz is about having serious fun while talking about books with the author and your friends!

* readergirlz is about getting the inside scoop about why the novel was written, the tears and joys and real-world angst that the author has lived and layered into her story.

* readergirlz is about reading great books to get to know yourself, your friends, and yes, even your mother, better.

* readergirlz is about celebrating strong girls in books who've got the guts to dream.

* readergirlz is about reaching out to others based on what you've read.

* And most of all, readergirlz is about inspiring girls to make history of their own!
