Early in 2020 during the first few weeks of quarantine, model and actress Kaia Gerber launched her very own Instagram book club where she recommends her 6 million followers a book to read every other week and later invites authors and influential celebrity guests to go live on her page for an insightful, deep, and intriguing discussion about the book they wrote or read together.
Joined by millions of followers and bringing her love of literature to a new generation, the 19-year-old model has never shied away from her passion and belief in the importance of reading and storytelling. Citing her mother, Cindy Crawford, as “the reason I read,” she reminds her followers of the adventures you can have even from the room you’re spending lockdown in.
Though Gerber took a break from her book club for the holidays, she’s ready to kick it off starting tomorrow with an IG Live to discuss her thoughts about American writer Joan Didion’s book, Let Me Tell You What I Mean. Join the book club on Instagram at @kaiagerber.
The book club is free and no commitment! All you have to do is grab a copy of the book and tune in to Gerber’s IG Lives. Catch up on the club’s previous 2020 book list below while you wait!
