WH Smith to launch book club with Zoella
In the UK, WH Smith is launching an ‘exclusive book club’ with YouTube star and Girl Online author Zoella, reports the Bookseller. The club, which will launch in mid-2016, will encompass ‘all the books Zoella loves most’, including adult, YA and children’s books. WH Smith books director Lucy Menendez said the company had been ‘working hard to get great books into the hands of more teens and young adults’. ‘Girl Online took the young adult market by storm and we know that our younger customers are some of the biggest supporters of Zoe,’ she said. ‘We’re confident they will be delighted to see a new selection of recommended reads in WH Smith stores this summer.’ WH Smith already runs a book club with UK TV personalities Richard and Judy.
