Yes. There is no requirement to have attended a camp program or special event in New York City of other partner cities to subscribe to or become a member of Rialto Readers.
My child has not attended a Camp Broadway program before - is that OK?
What is the Rialto Readers?
The Rialto Readers is a national book club designed for kids ages 8 – 15 who love to read and have an interest in the arts.
How are the books selected?
The books are selected by K – 6 school librarian, Stacey Rattner. Stacey collaborates with a diverse group of authors, publishers, librarians, educators, and artists to select books around a quarterly theme chosen by the team at Camp Broadway. There will be 3 books in each of three categories: Picture Books, Middle Reader and Young Adult.
Is it free to join?
Yes. The Rialto Readers Book Club Membership is free of charge.
What are the benefits of a Membership?
Subscribers will receive a quarterly newsletter, delivered via email, that features the reading lists in all three categories. The newsletter will also contain information about the books, the selection process, and feature stories geared toward young readers who have an interest in the performing arts.
More benefits are coming soon including, download-able bookmarks, games, and other activities related to the books featured in the reading list.
Does this program take place entirely online?
Yes. Currently, this program is entirely online. The quarterly Newsletter which contains the quarterly reading list is delivered via email and is also available on Camp Broadway’s Good Reads page. Access to the Meet the Author sessions is fully online.
I have a specific question. Who can I talk to?
