The Wall Street Journal has introduced a book club that is led by authors. Every month a guest host picks a book by another author and then acts as a guide for readers on Twitter. Book club participants can ask questions through the social network using the hashtag #WSJbookclub.
For the first month, Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert is the host and the book is Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall. In February, Gilbert will lead an online discussion about the work. “It’s one of the greatest stories in history. Henry VIII. There’s hardly a better tale of intrigue,” Gilbert told The Wall Street Journal, about her choice. “It’s sex and politics and power and madness and violence. It’s “Game of Thrones.” It’s got everything that you could possibly want.”
