Uzo Aduba to Host The Netflix Book Club

Netflix is entering the arenas of books with the launch of their own Netflix Book Club, a global club to read the books that inspired the streaming service’s popular adaptations. And they tapped Uzo Aduba to host the club.

“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked friends, ‘But have you read the book?’ So I’m excited to host Netflix Book Club and bring together loyal book fans, TV and movie obsessives and the creators behind their favorite stories. I can’t wait to dive deep into the creative process and what it takes to bring a book to life.”

The Netflix Book Club is where readers will hear about new books, films and series adaptations, as well as have exclusive access to each book’s adaptation process. Netflix is also partnering with Starbucks to bring the book club to life via a social series called But Have You Read the Book?

With Aduba as the host, she will announce monthly book selections set to be adapted by the streamer. Aduba will also speak with the cast, creators and authors about the book adaptation process over a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

The book club will start on November 16 and be available on the Netflix US channel and Still Watching Netflix YouTube channel.

The first monthly selection in the Netflix Book Club will be Nella Larsen’s 1929 novel Passing to coincide with the film’s Nov. 10 release date on the streamer.

The Rebecca Hall- directed film stars Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga as two childhood friends who reunite after losing touch. With one “passing” for white, their reunion soon threatens their carefully constructed realities.

Fans can go to the Netflix Book Club website and sign up via email to get more information. And, they can see what book adaptations are streaming now. So, if you wanna be in a really BIG book club, head over and get ready to dive in.
