The actress and Draper James fonder is also cooking up some original programming, to be released later this fall.
If you can’t get enough of Reese Witherspoon’s Instagram book club, Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine, and companion website, now you can get your fix through another medium: audiobooks.
Today, the actress announced that she will partner with Audible. Beginning in June, Witherspoon will pick her book club pick with audio in mind and promote both the audiobook and hardcover versions of her selection. Later this year, the actress has plans to release original audio (to be called Audible Originals by Hello Sunshine). No word yet whether those will be books or short stories.
“When I started Reese’s book club, I wanted to highlight stories with women at the center and I’m so excited to deliver on that mission,” Witherspoon said in a statement.
Through her book club, Witherspoon has recommended more than 10 books to her followers, and her production company, Hello Sunshine, is adapting some of these selections for the screen. Witherspoon and Kerry Washington are developing Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You into a Hulu Original Series. With Kristen Wiig, Witherspoon will produce a comedy series for Apple based on Curtis Sittenfeld’s You Think It, I’ll Say It.
You Think It, I’ll Say It was Witherspoon’s latest book club selection, announced in May. And if you missed the news: Witherspoon herself will release her first book, a guide to living like a Southerner called Whiskey in a Teacup ($21, amazon.com), on September 18. You can preorder the book on Amazon now.
