Kaia Gerber is starting a book club on social media.
Like millions of people around the world, the model is practicing social distancing and staying at home during the coronavirus crisis.
Kaia has been using the time away from her busy schedule to catch up on some books, and in a recent Instagram post, announced her plans to launch a reading group online.
“I know we are all feeling isolated right now, so I was trying to think of easy ways we can stay connected (beyond just scrolling) and decided i’m gonna start a book club. i read a lot on my own, but would love to be able to talk to you guys about it… so every week i’m gonna post a book to my stories and the following week i’ll jump on live (sometimes with a friend, writer, guest etc.) so we can all talk about the book that week (sic),” she wrote.
Kaia has been rereading Sally Rooney’s Normal People lately and selected the 2018 novel as her first pick for the club.
“I want to start with a new favourite I’m actually rereading right now: Normal People by Sally Rooney. download it, borrow it, order it if you can! let’s all meet here and talk next week,” the 18-year-old added, noting that the first book club will officially begin at 5pm on 3 April.
Elsewhere, Kaia posted some lists of the other books she’s been reading on her Instagram Stories. The star recommended a number of titles, such as Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, Mario Vargas Llosa’s The Bad Girl, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, and Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, as well as classics such as Plato’s Symposium.
