Join Open Book: The Seventeen Book Club
Welcome to Open Book: The Seventeen Reading Club! If you’re an avid reader and can’t stop seeing #BookTok videos popping up on your FYP, then you’ve come to the right place. Here has Seventeen, we believe that books are magical and transformative devices that have the ability to introduce us to new places, cultures and ideas. They retain the ability to explore great stories on a range of topics, including first love, friendship, family, race, and identity.
That said, we are delighted to dedicate a space to book lovers. We hope to diversify and expand your library, showcase established and emerging authors, and connect you through a shared love of reading.
Every quarter we will announce four book titles that are in the running to be our next book club read. Once we’ve properly introduced each title and provided a brief synopsis, we’ll post a poll on Seventeen’s Instagram Stories (follow us here). Once the poll is complete, vote for the book you would like to read. Once the voting is over – the poll is live for 24 hours – we’ll announce the winner on our stories.
What happens after the winner is announced? Buy the book or check it out at the library! So join the Open Book Facebook groupwhere you will have the opportunity to discuss the book with other readers and ask questions.
Towards the end of the term, we will ask you to submit your questions, comments and/or thoughts to the author. In a video interview with the author, we will go over these questions and post the video here and on Seventeenthe social pages of.
