Witherspoon launched her book club in 2017 that would give the spotlight to women writers. And just like Oprah’s book club, any book chosen by Witherspoon would go on to become a New York Times bestseller. Some books would also go on to become TV Shows or even movies directed by Witherspoon herself!

Witherspoon is using her fame to help female authors get more exposure is a win for everyone. Many books get neglected and don’t receive the proper recognition. With lots of celebrities creating book clubs, we are seeing new authors charting and providing even more books for book lovers to read!
