Hello there! Thanks for stopping by the MG Book Village!

First off, we want to thank each and every one of you who have been a part of and . I know I speak for Jarrett as well when I say that we are SO grateful to Annaliese for starting this movement, and for allowing us to be a part of it with her. These past two months have seen readers and writers come together to share the MG books that have been important to them, the books that made them laugh and cry, the books that have special meaning in their lives. We want to keep these conversation going.

Annaliese, Jarrett, and I have started this website in order to create a meaningful place to stay connected to the world of MGlit – both the books AND the people that make it what it is. We plan for it to be a place for authors to share their books and what they’re working on, for readers to learn about what’s new and on the horizon and to learn more about their favorite writers. It will, we hope, be a place where each and every one of us – teacher, reader, librarian, author – can share our thoughts and feelings about middle grade literature.

We have several wonderful ideas on which we’re working, but it’s important to us to hear from all of YOU as well. Please feel free to reach out to us using the form on our Contact page and tell us your thoughts and ideas. What would YOU like to see here at the MG Book Village?

We are looking forward to connecting with, sharing with, listening to, and learning from you all.
