Meg Wolitzer To Attend Book Clubs Over Skype

Skype has released a new group video calling feature that lets users have conversations with up to ten people at a time. This is great news for book clubs that wish to meet from remote locations or, better yet, book clubs who’d like to invite the author to attend.

To take advantage of this new feature, More.com is running a Skype book club promotion. Author Meg Wolitzer will attend nine book club meetings in August via Skype to talk about her novel, The Uncoupling. Interested book clubs can enter to win a Skype visit by answering a simple question: “Tell us why your book club should be selected.”
