Book Voyagers is Connecticut Humanities’ reading and discussion program for families and children.

Book Voyagers programs are designed to promote the joy of reading and encourage families to create literature-rich home environments. Experienced program facilitators work with libraries, schools and other community organizations to help parents and children build reading skills and bring stories to life using a variety of different formats, including discussion circles, storytelling, and interactive workshops to immerse the whole family in compelling learning experiences. Hands on activities, such as dramatic readings, theater games, and writing and drawing exercises offer new ways for participants to connect with the written word. The programs even help families build their own personal libraries by giving copies of each book for them to keep and enjoy again and again.

In addition to book discussion programs, Connecticut Humanities helps bring special events to communities across the state. From multi-cultural storytellers to cartooning workshops, these special programs help children and families to engage with literature and culture in creative ways and from new perspectives.
