Our November Book Club is the Anime/Manga Book Club located in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, D.C. This book club meets in their local library the last Wednesday of every month. Mr. Jordan Johnson, the club advisor, said, “I’m not much of an anime expert but I know that there’s a need and a hunger for it in the community so I’m just trying to make it available to the kids.”
This club is especially unique as it allows the teens to really plan the program and decide what they want to do. This club discusses whatever books the members bring in and want to discuss and do a lot of anime viewing! Some of the coolest activities have included Cherry Blossom crafts, oragami, GO board (a Japanese-based board game), anime or fan art, and the coolest one by far was making peanut butter & jelly sushi. VERY cool!
Thank you to the Anime/Manga Book Club at the Petworth Library for being our November Book Club and for giving local teens a chance to lead and channel their love of anime.
