How It Works
#APStogether is a series of virtual book clubs that take place on social media. They are free, and open to all. Each session is hosted by a different writer, who selects a book to read together. The selected titles can be ordered here, or at your local independent bookstore.
#APStogether is a sequel to #TolstoyTogether, a virtual book club hosted by Yiyun Li to read War and Peace. This summer, the book clubs will be shorter journeys—short novels, and even some poetry. We will read slowly, at a pace of about 15 pages each day, and finish each book within two weeks. The schedule for each book club will be listed below. Every morning, we will share observations from the writer hosting the current book club on our Twitter and Instagram accounts. Readers will take the conversation from there—offering their insights, sharing research, asking questions. The ongoing conversation will be organized using #APStogether. An archive of the writer-host's daily observations and highlights from the book club will be available on our website here and shared in a newsletter. If you aren't already on our mailing list, you can join here. Please email us with any questions.
We are pleased to share Fletcher Huntley's essay "Why Have You Forsaken Me?" as the 2023 recipient of the Bette Howland Nonfiction Prize.
