VIRTUAL EVENTS: Our Virtual Events task force is making it easier to attend an author event from the comfort of your home. Check out the above schedule to find out when you can see your authors LIVE!

 

HOW HAVE I NOT READ THIS?: The new How Have I Not Read This? book club launched across our social media channels (Doubleday, Knopf, Vintage/Anchor). Our next discussion will be on June 4 at 7pm where our moderators Jennifer Egan and Michelle Zauner will be discussing A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, hosted by Greenlight Bookstore.

#SHELFCARE: Our Daily Zen task force will be sharing messages of self-care and mindfulness on our social channels under the hashtag #ShelfCare. They would love if KDD employees and authors would participate by sharing photos that go with each week’s theme – gold star if your photo subtly (or not-so-subtly!) includes a KDD book.

 

@KNOPFCOOKS: Follow the new @KnopfCooks Instagram. Show us what you’re cooking by tagging us on Instagram and using the hashtag #KnopfCooks—we’d love to share your creations on our main feed.

 

THE READING GROUP CENTER: Check out the new Pinterest channel where the listicles task force has been pinning Reading Group Center posts and listicles of your favorite reads. Follow, repin, and help spread the word!
