Random House – Beauty And The Book

Random House is working with Pulpwood Queens Book Club founder and author Kathy Patrick to start an online book club featuring interviews with RH authors. The first season has 12 episodes planned, featuring authors including Pat Conroy, Fannie Flagg, Lisa See, and Susan Vreeland. A new episode will be posted weekly.

Random House Publishing Group marketing director Avideh Bashirrad says, “We’ve seen increased demand for digital content from book clubs, so we developed a program that would offer them more of what they love. Kathy Patrick was our ideal choice for the partnership since she has been an advocate of our books for many years.”

Visit for first and future episodes.  If you have friends who belong to a book club, let them know.  They’ll get a kick seeing the author get a make-over after the interview.

Talk tomorrow,
