USA TODAY: We want to read Stephen King's FAIRY TALE with you

Posted: September 28th, 2022 5:35:52 am

The only thing better than getting sucked into a good book is sharing that book with others. Handing over a dog-eared paperback to a friend, gushing about shocking plot twists over coffee, sharing a hankie over tear-jerker endings – good stories are made better with sharing.

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.
