Additional Update! Also on board is Cindy’s Bookstore located in the Mega Mall on All Saints Road. They, too, are offering a 20 percent discount for anyone purchasing a book from the reading list who indicates that they’re “accepting the challenge”.

Update! The Cushion Club Wadadli Pen Summer Reading List has been updated with additional recommendations courtesy the Best of Books. The list includes their Caribbean Teen Summer pick Haiti-based In Darkness by  Nick Lake and Antigua-Barbuda Teen Summer pick, Musical Youth, a finalist for the Burt Award, by Joanne C. Hillhouse. When you go in to purchase your books for the reading list, be sure to let them know you’re “accepting the challenge” for a possible 20 percent discount.  Thanks to both Map Shop and the Best of Books for their assistance with compiling this list.

The Challenge – go through the CUSHION CLUB WADADLI PEN SUMMER READING LIST 2015, select the books you want to read, get and read as many of those books as you can or want to, write a short (very short) paragraph about your favourite character or something you liked about the book; submit complete list and mini-reviews to cushionclub@yahoo.com at the end of August 2015. You must be resident in Antigua and Barbuda and aged 5 to 15 to participate. Please indicate your age and contact information when submitting. To be considered for a prize, you must have read a MINIMUM of three books including one by an Antiguan-Barbudan author, one by a Caribbean author, and one international. We encourage you to borrow and share books when you can, and/or purchase from local bookstores (including Map Shop which assisted with compiling this list) as able. Some of the books are available for loan from the Cushion Club; call 722-7719 to follow up on that. DO NOT email re borrowing books, call only, please! Email cushionclub@yahoo.com ONLY to send your list and mini-reviews at the end of summer and be considered for a prize. Yes, there’s a prize; maybe even prizes! Not the least of which is the fun reading adventure you’re about to embark on. Parental Advisory: 5 to 15 cuts a wide swath. While all books are chosen for their literary merit and appeal to the target age group, some deal with more ‘grown up’ themes (sexuality, death etc.) and while deemed appropriate for older readers are not necessarily appropriate for younger readers, others may require guided reading and interaction between child/teen and parent; parents, please be guided accordingly.
