The Spitfire Club seeks to create a world in which every girl feels empowered to be the strong and capable protagonist of her own story.

We're an extracurricular book club for girls, structured around curriculum based on a carefully selected collection of children's books featuring strong, diverse, female protagonists. We believe that, by creating demand for and building community around diverse, girl-positive books, we can help girls nurture their love of reading and their love of self.
