Pop Culture Classroom is excited to announce a continued partnership with Youth One Book, One Denver (YOBOD) Programs this summer! Since 2013, Pop Culture Classroom has offered over a dozen summer workshops and reached hundreds of students around the Denver Metro area through the YOBOD program.
Now entering its sixth year, YOBOD is a summer reading program designed for 9- to 12-year-olds. Each summer, a book is selected for students to read all throughout Denver and surrounding areas. Students are also offered fun activities and events related to the selection to enhance their reading experience and combat learning loss.
YOBOD SUMMER 2017
The 2017 YOBOD selection is Upside-Down Magic by hit authors Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle and Emily Jenkins.
This summer, PCC will be running a new series of pop culture-based workshops inspired by the shared reading experience of Upside-Down Magic at sites throughout Denver, including the Sun Valley Youth Center, Johnson Boys & Girls Club, Heart & Hand Academy, and more.

These workshops will give students the opportunity to create their own magical creatures, costumes, comics or board games based around the book, helping bring this book to life and promote literacy.
We are so excited for another fun-filled summer promoting literacy and being a part of this wonderful program! To learn more about YOBOD and check if a summer workshop is happening near you, be sure to visit http://artsandvenuesdenver.com/events-programs/one-book-one-denver-new/.
