Can you talk about a book in 140 characters? You’ll have to if you join The Book Studio’s Twitter Book Club. Now six months old, the Twitter Book Club meets online once a month to talk about a recent book. Picks for the past few months have been Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge, Lorrie Moore’s A Gate at the Stairs, and Zoe Heller’s The Believers. Coming up in November is Amy McKinnon’s Tethered. The discussions are archived, and authors often join in, which adds to the twitterliciousness.
In addition to the Twitter Book Club, The Book Studio offers book reviews, author interviews, videos, and other stuff that book groups might find useful. The Book Studio is an online project of WETA, the Washington, D.C. public television station.
