There are bookclubs for women, bookclubs for men, bookclubs for singles, even bookclubs for people who don't really like reading, they just like getting together. And now there's The Worm Society, a bookclub especially designed for Brisbane kids.

The brainchild of primary teacher Kathryn Black, The Worm Society is a monthly bookclub for middle to upper-primary children who are competent readers.

It's a chance for kids to get together, have fun, and talk about books. Kathryn, who has a special interest in literature for children, believes it's a great way to encourage children to love books and to learn to talk and think about them with like-minded friends. Oh, and to eat a yummy afternoon tea as well.

The Worm Society will be held at the Brisbane Powerhouse, at New Farm, starting on the 23rd of February.

You can choose to join the Glow Worms, Woolly Worms, Rainbow Worms or Silk Worms. Each group will meet on a different day of the week (from Monday to Thursday), and meetings will be held once a month from 4pm to 5.30pm. Worm Society members will get a book bag, bookmark and membership card. Kathryn will facilitate the groups.

Bookings close Monday the 20th of February, so if you want your own little bookworm to join a group, head over to The Worm Society's Facebook page and get busy.
