We’re counting the days until we can talk openly (no spoilers!) with other readers about Hank Green’s wildly funny novel about fame, friendship, and growing up. Here’s Hank introducing his novel’s narrator (and more) in an exclusive video.
The immersion of a long read, the bond of great conversation, and the feeling he gets walking into a Barnes & Noble are just a few of Hank Green’s favorite things. Find out more when you watch the second act of our exclusive interview.
“Hedy had an incredible life story that is little known, and her immeasurable contributions to science were anonymous until quite recently. Our belief that we know her because her name is familiar and she appeared in movies is faulty; we only know the characters she depicted on film and the public Hedy shown in the media at the time. The authentic Hedy who was motivated to assist the war effort and the victims of the Third Reich through her inventions lay beneath the mask she wore for society, and I wanted to explore this pervasive, intriguing theme of the variance between women”s exterior and interior lives.”
What does any reader (especially a bookseller) love more than reading or recommending books?
Simple: Talking about books with another reader. The Only Woman in the Room is the first selection of our Barnes & Noble Book Club for 2019. At our stores across the country, readers will come together to discuss this compelling story—some bringing friends and family with them, others making new friends—as they ask, What would you have done?
Our B&N Book Club is Now Monthly!
We all had so much fun talking books together at our first three book club nights—so much so that customers and booksellers kept asking for more. So beginning in January 2019, we’re bringing the Barnes & Noble Book Club to readers everywhere every month. That’s not our only big news: We’ll not only tell you what the next month’s selection will be at the end of every book club night, we’ll also give away one copy of that next selection at the same time. A new Barnes & Noble Book club section is announced on the book’s Tuesday publication date, and we can’t wait to hear what you have to say about these books.
