Former First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager introduced the author and the book on Monday’s show.
The Today Show‘s book club began last fall with the debut Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, sending it on to best seller lists for a brief time. Since then, there have been just four more picks, the most recent in May, The Fault in Our Stars, which capitalized on the attention surrounding the movie.
For the new pick, the Today Show invites people to:
“Read along with TODAY viewers, sharing your reaction to the book on Twitter via @TODAYsBooks and the TODAY Book Club Google+ community. Be sure to follow the TODAY Book Club newsletter for the latest information.”
Hager will host an online conversation with Rawl on Nov. 14.
