Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the world’s largest retail bookseller, today announced the return of its seasonal Kids’ Book Hangout in stores nationwide on Saturday, May 18 at 2 PM. The customer-favorite event is a nationwide program for young readers to celebrate reading with exciting new books and fun games and activities designed toward readers in grades two through six. This spring Kids’ Book Hangout features an introduction to four recommended books, and free giveaways, while supplies last. Customers can sign up at BN.com/BNHangout.
“Our Kids’ Book Hangouts have brought tens of thousands of kids together across the country to discover new books and celebrate reading, which is why we’re so pleased to announce this spring edition of the event,” said Stephanie Fryling, Vice President of Merchandising, Children’s Books at Barnes & Noble. “We strive to make the Kids’ Book Hangout an event where kids can learn about new books and get excited about reading, and this season’s selection offers riveting stories about friendship, school, and even Greek mythology.”
For this spring’s selection, Barnes & Noble partnered with HarperCollins to highlight four unique books for young readers across genres and reading stages. Kids do not need to have read the featured books but should come ready to discover new characters, stories, and genres.
