The LOL Book Club was founded by Imani Ariana Grant. Imani Ariana is a child author of Disco Balls of the Universe and The Golden Life of Sally Sunflower, a blogger, and entrepreneur from Connecticut. L.O.L stands for Love of Literature. The LOL book club is not just about reading. Imani hopes to build a community of children who enjoy reading and socializing and have fun through literature. Our book club meets Wednesdays at 5:30-630 pm est for 5-8 year old children and 7:00 – 8:00 pm est for 9 to 14 year old children. The mission of the Love of Literature (LOL) Book Club are to:
1. Expose children to age-appropriate STEM education through literature.
2. Encourage children to use their imagination during learning and play.
3. Foster children's learning above and beyond words by engaging in active play, adventure, and hands-on group activities.
4. Build self-confidence through group interaction, collaboration, and presentation.
5. Provide opportunities and resources to aid and encourage children to increase and improve reading and writing.
6. Encourage parent involvement in children’s learning, literacy, and growth.
7. Learn about and from diverse groups of people.
By introducing children to actual authors, we hope that they will increase their love of literature, writing, art, and STEM and feel empowered to tell their own stories. To be chosen as a featured author, your book must be aligned to our mission.
