Barnes and Noble Book Club has been running for a year and the bookseller has gravitated all of the discussion and author interviews to their Facebook Page, since hardly of their stores have reopened. They July Pick is Rachel Beanland’s Florence Adler Swims Forever.
The virtual event on August 4 will be hosted on Barnes & Noble’s Facebook Page and will include a conversation between Rachel Beanland and Anne Hood. Before the virtual event, customers can also join in discussion at their convenience in the new B&N Book Club Facebook group and on social media via the hashtag #BNBookClub.
“Before I went back to graduate school, I was a member of not one but two book clubs, and I am so thrilled to have my novel selected as the July pick in the Barnes & Noble Book Club,” said Rachel Beanland. “I cannot wait for our virtual event on August 4. I believe there’s nothing better than that moment at book club when the room, or in this case the chat, erupts in conversation, everyone so excited about the book that they’re talking over each other, and I hope Florence Adler Swims Forever inspires that level of discussion.”
