We are very excited to announce that Stephanie Powell Watts, author of the inaugural Sarah Jessica Parker Book Club Central selection, No One Is Coming to Save Us, will be joining us to chat about her debut novel.

In addition, United for Libraries President Elect Skip Dye, VP, library marketing and digital sales at Penguin Random House, will discuss Sarah Jessica Parker’s most recent Book Club Central pick, Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, and resources for book clubs. Jennifer Hart, SVP, Associate Publisher and Group Marketing Director of William Morrow, will also be joining us to discuss Book Club Girl and the resources available through that program.

The American Library Association (ALA) launched Book Club Central at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago this summer with the website and Honorary Chair Sarah Jessica Parker’s first selection.
