Kaia Gerber has turned her favourite pastime into an inspiring way to create meaningful connections between her 5.4 million followers, as social distancing measures intensify.
"I know we are all feeling isolated right now, so I was trying to think of easy ways we can stay connected (beyond just scrolling) and decided I’m gonna start a book club," she announced on Instagram.
"I read a lot on my own, but would love to be able to talk to you guys about it, so every week I’m gonna post a book to my stories and the following week I’ll jump on live (sometimes with a friend, writer, guest etc.) so we can all talk about the book that week!"
The book she's chosen to start the proceedings is Normal People by Sally Rooney, which she reveals is a new favourite of hers that she's currently rereading.
Spoiler alert: according to publisher, "Normal People is the story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find that they can’t." Intriguing.
"Download it, borrow it, order it if you can," she urges. "Let’s all meet here and talk next week on 3 April at 5pm PST."
We'll see you there Kaia!
