Abstract

This article describes a collaborative Book Bistro between my pre-service teachers and Kim’s middle school students. First, we will describe how this strategy aligns with scholarship supporting adolescent readers and pre-service teachers. We will then share the logistics and results of our event as well as suggestions for others interested in using this strategy.
