Sonali Bendra Behl’s book club first anniversary!

The gorgeous actress, voracious reader and best-selling author, Sonali Bendre Behl just celebrated one year with her online book club. She claimed to venture into the digital space to launch a book club in order to revive her lost love for reading and it seems to have worked wonders!

Celebrating their anniversary on World Storytelling Day, the book club has brought together readers and writers in order to form a community. Here, they share insights, exchange book ideas, give TBR list suggestions and have general discussions after completing a book.

Being an avid reader and success writer, Sonali made it a mission to bring together those like her and create a safe space for them to read, write, grow and learn together. She roped in a lot of Indian writers over the course of the past year to share their experiences and offer tips to aspiring writers.

I am so happy that the book club has grown at such a pace in a year’s time. I have definitely become a better reader with it. If the club has helped readers and writers find a common ground, my job is done,” said the actress.

Book clubs have been booming in India in the recent past and this trend of celebrity book clubs has definitely been brought in from the west. Such clubs make it easier for readers to interact with their favourite authors and the authors get insights directly from the readers.
