Teen programs

We run friendly events and digital programs to connect young adults with books, stories, writing – and each other.

Inside a Dog

'Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read.'
– Groucho Marx

Visit our popular and fun Inside a Dog website – a place for bookish teens.

Inside a Dog offers a safe space for teenagers to talk together about books and stories, writing and culture. It's a space where you can create a blog, share book reviews or creative writing and add your voice to the bookish conversation in a way that feels right to you.

What are you waiting for? Come on in to explore Inside a Dog and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
