Book Clubs: What Every Publisher Needs to Know

Level: Foundational

What do book clubs look for when picking a book, and how can you best target them?

Davina Morgan-Witts, publisher of BookBrowse, will share findings from their most recent research into book clubs. Based on two surveys of over 5,000 people, “The Inner Lives of Book Clubs” reveals the motivations and surprising truths about book groups. The presentation will focus on insights and actionable information directly relevant to publishers.

Topics covered will include:

  • How widely held perceptions of book clubs are very different from reality.
  • What people want from their book club experience.
  • The factors book clubs consider when picking books.
  • When and how to target book clubs.
  • Advice for authors wishing to talk to book clubs.
  • Tips for creating a great discussion guide.
