Please note: The Insiders book group is not occurring at this time.

Do you love to read? Are you between 14 and 18?
If yes, and if you want to improve the literary life of your community, then you are probably an Insider

What do the Insiders get?

  • Review copies of YA books before they’re published
  • Special field trips, events, and author Q&As

What do the Insiders give?

  • Your opinions! Tell us what books you’ve loved and write shelf-talkers for the store
  • Meet other Insiders on the second Sunday of the month (5:00 pm)
  • Share what you’ve read and pick up new books
  • Two hours of volunteer time in the store per year: Help at a children's event, help choose books for the Giving Tree, or staff the YA Advisory Desk (and you can submit school community service forms for volunteering)

If you think you should be one of the Insiders, write a short review of your favorite YA book & email it to Clare Doornbos, cdoornbos@bookpassage.com. The number of Insiders is limited, so write now!

INK: Books for Not-Quite-Young-Adults
• a drop-in book group for kids age 8-12 •
6:00-7:00 pm • 3rd Friday of the Month • Corte Madera Store

INK is a book group designed for avid readers and writers from ages 8-12. It’s a lively group of kids who meet to plot, illustrate, and write their own books. They are the authors of Dragon Mist, Dragon Fire, and Dragon Island.

The group also discusses books they’ve read and invites authors to speak about their own books and the writing process. The perks of membership include launch parties for INK books, scoring advance reader’s copies of new books, and writing book reviews. But the best perk is working with a group of book fans who have imaginations as big as your own!

INK for YAs
• a drop-in book group for ages 12-16 •
7:15-8:15 pm • 3rd Friday of the Month • Corte Madera Store

INK for YAs was formed by graduates of INK , but they welcome others. They are now planning their first book.

School Link Program

Nearly 100 Bay Area schools have received books for more than a decade from our School Link Program. When parents or friends of your school shop at our stores and mention your school, we give back a portion of those sales in the form of Book Passage gift certificates. Read More >>

In-Store Book Fair Events

Schedule either a multi-day event or a single-night event in the store, and your school will earn a substantial rebate on any book purchased by your parents and supporters. Although we will provide a curated list for the event, your school rebate extends to any book purchased during that event.  

We can create leveled Highlights Lists, offer student and adult book chats, and help you create a unique experience for your school. Examples from our events have included band and choir performances, dramatic readings, storytelling, art displays, author appearances, and more! We work with you to design a program that reflects your school while introducing students (and families!) to the newest in children’s and adult literature.

Teacher Discount Card

Teachers who enlist in the program receive a substantial discount off their purchases at professional events, and they receive the same discount year-round for classroom purchases!

Classroom Visits and Library Curation

Our Children’s Team is happy to help you select books for your classroom or library and to make presentations to your staff and students at the school.
