That’s why USA TODAY launched a Book Club as part of their commitment to help you find the good stuff on crowded shelves and continue the conversation after the final page has been turned.

Join them for a Twitter Spaces conversation on October 27th when host Brian Truitt will be joined by special guests to be announced.
