A digital publisher of Pat Conroy, Alice Walker and other writers has formed an online book club with a website that has for years served as a hub for reading groups.
Open Road Integrated Media announced Friday that it was partnering with BookMovement.com, which includes reading guides and lists of the most popular book club choices. The new club will be called DigiReaders and among the books to be discussed are Conroy's "The Prince of Tides" and Walker's "The Temple of My Familiar." Free e-releases will be offered each month through BookMovement's site.
The book club was scheduled to go live Friday.
