Concord Homeschool Website

Teen Book Group

A monthly book group for homeschooled teens meets at Borders in Concord on the second Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m.. (Note that this coincides with the Concord Homeschool Group meetings for parents.)
Stephanie, a homeschooling mom, has generously offered to lead the group. 

This is officially a "Border's-sanctioned" group: we have our own area reserved and our group name announced on the board of events.  We are issued free drink coupons and Borders has offered to order multiple copies of our chosen book in advance, for sale, at a 20% discount. (Most of the books are also available at local libraries also.) 

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact
