Teen Book + Film Club: Ready Player One

Presented by Sidewalk Film Festival + Center at Sidewalk Film Center + Cinema

Sidewalk’s Teen Book + Film Club is a fun activity for your middle or high schooler this summer! Based on our monthly Book + Film Clubs, this summer program is an opportunity for teens to make new friends, watch fun films and engage their reading & critical thinking skills through the summer. Register by the deadline to have your books mailed to you. If you sign up after the deadline, don’t sweat it! You’ll just have to pick up your book from the cinema box office. Read the book and then join other teens as we screen the film adaptation and host a round-table discussion.
