We can't wait to meet you!
I have always loved reading. When I decided to become an educator, I knew that I wanted to specialize in reading with the hope of igniting young readers with a passion and love for reading. Though I enjoy engaging with young LITs, there was still something missing for me. I wanted to also engage with adult readers, so I started my first book club, where I met my now partner. Our small local book club has now grown into a dream come true...LIT JAVA! We are so excited to engage with you and provide you with LIT books, experiences, drinks, and events!
My love for reading goes back to the Scholastic book fairs in elementary school. I would look forward to these events every year and save money so I can buy all of the Baby-Sitters Club books, Fear Street Books, Goosebumps....I wanted all of the books. My younger sister and I connected over books and I didn’t realize it then but we were having our own book club meetings at the young age of 10 to discuss books as we finished them. That love for reading grew as I got older. I was excited to join different books clubs as an adult and connect with people all over the world over our love of reading. It was a dream come true when I found someone in a book club with that same passion as me and we decided to stop ignoring what was deeply rooted inside us and created LIT Java. I hope we can create LIT experiences for all that has that same passion. Thanks for making our dream become reality!
