“I love Australia’s and New Zealand’s libraries and I love book clubs!” Hammer said in a press release announcing the program. ”In these times of COVID and lockdowns, what could be better than an online, digital book club?”
The Together We Read digital book club connects readers through participating New Zealand and Australian public libraries with the same ebook for two weeks and only requires a valid library card to get started. This free program is facilitated by OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for ebooks, audiobooks and magazines and creator of the award-winning Libby app.
A book club discussion guide and letter from Hammer to readers were included in this most recent Together We Read event. Hammer also discussed Scrublands as a guest on the Professional Book Nerds podcast.
Previous Together We Read titles have included:
- The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone by Felicity McLean
