PBS and New York Times Begin the Definitive Online Book Club

The PBS NewsHour has teamed with The New York Times for a wonderful online book club called Now Read This. At the beginning of every month, the club will announce a book that, at least hopefully, sheds some light on current events or cultural concerns. The book may be fiction, nonfiction, or anything in between.


Throughout the month, members of Now Read This will participate in discussions about the book, and the page will also be posting anything related to the book or author, such as writing advice, interviews, or the occasional New York Times book review.


The best part is that at the end of the month, the book’s author will appear on the PBS NewsHour and field questions from Now Read This members. Pretty cool!

This month’s book is Jesmyn Ward’s celebrated Sing, Unburied, Sing. If you don’t already have a stacked TBR list, then Now Read This might be just the way to find your next read. Best of all, you get to talk to other readers. Join the group here, and happy reading!
