Join Write Review founder Annie McDonnell for a Facebook Live discussion of how to start your own Facebook Book Club. Annie will share her own experiences as well as talk through your opportunities to shape your book club model and its features (giveaways, live interviews, book reviews, author takeovers, book club meetings, genres, etc.) She will also discuss book club marketing, site management, reader recruitment, connecting with authors, and getting advance reading copies of forthcoming books.

If you’re ready to take your existing book club online, or if you’re eager to learn more about starting a new book club with a social media presence, this workshop is for you.

Writers and readers are invited to join this informative, interactive, inspirational, and FREE conversation.

About Our Presenter:
Annie McDonnellA lifelong reader and advocate for writers and books, Annie McDonnell is a graduate of High Point University (NC). In 2006, she entered a contest with Elle Magazine and become a book reviewer for the magazine. When Elle stopped running book reviews, Annie moved to blogging and eventually began the Write Review. An entire community was born. Annie writes book reviews, beta reads, blurbs books, runs a book club, interviews authors, and hosts fun, interactive events to promote literacy.

In recognition of her many efforts, Annie was awarded the 2021 Doug Marlette Award for Literacy Leadership, a lifetime achievement award presented by the Pulpwood Queens, the largest book club in the U.S. In February 2021, the Annie McDonnell Book Award was announced, honoring her dedication to the literary community and her courage and strength in battling a rare illness. Annie lives in Mastic, NY, with her husband, three beautiful dogs and five lovely cats. She also volunteers at One Love Dog Rescue and supports Operation Paperback and Children’s Literacy.
