Simon & Schuster has a new, dedicated Reading Group Resources page on simonandschuster.com. The page highlights authors and book group picks; and lets visitors browse reading group guides by subject and author, get information on the genesis of some favorite book club titles, view trailers and videos, get tips for book club leaders on how to start their own groups and facilitate discussions, access sample reading group discussion questions, discuss books on its message boards, and read the Simon & Schuster Book Club Newsletter.
Wendy Sheanin, director, adult marketing, called the new page “a one-stop shop for everything a book group might need.”
The page also features the S&S Twitter feed. Using the #bookclub, S&S’s Twitter account will host Book Group Wednesdays every week, which will include specific questions designed to facilitate a tweeting book group discussion. Book Group Wednesdays kicked off with Jeannette Walls’s Half Broke Horses yesterday.
