Penguin Partners with BlogHer for Book Club

Penguin Group (USA) has partnered with the online BlogHer community to create a book club. Sassymonkey Reads blogger/BlogHer contributing editor Karen Ballum will host.

According to Book Business Magazine, the book club will average two titles per month. Caleb’s Crossing by Geraldine Brooks is the first pick. Participants will enjoy special book club features such as live chats, behind-the-scenes looks at the researching and writing process, and writing tips.

The article has this quote from Penguin Group (USA) president Susan Petersen Kennedy: “The BlogHer community is smart, opinionated, and influential—in other words, the perfect match for our authors and books. I’m looking forward to creating a forum in which women can discuss books, speak with authors, and grow as writers.”
