Great Stories Club 2017: Applications are now being accepted for a new round of ALA's Great Stories Club grants under the theme "Nature vs. Nurture: Origins of Teen Violence and Suicide." Applications will be accepted from Nov. 1 to Dec. 30, 2016. The Great Stories Club is a reading and discussion program for at-risk teens. Working with small groups of 6 to 10 teens, grantees will host reading and discussion events for each of three selected book titles. The titles — selected in consultation with librarian advisors and humanities scholars — are chosen to resonate with reluctant readers struggling with complex issues like incarceration, violence and poverty.
