Hosted by Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss

About the club

Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss, both avid readers, channeled their hobby into an online community of like-minded subscribers. After years of mailing books from Karah in New York to Emma in Los Angeles (and back), they moved their book club online in 2017. Thanks to social media and the unifying power of the internet, Belletrist has become a community for the curious that celebrates great books, the authors who write them, and the people who so lovingly read them.

Explore. Discuss. Connect.

Each month Emma and Karah curate a new book selection, discuss books with their authors, participate in conversations with the community, and more!

Videos that bring new life to the pages of Belletrist books.

You read the book, now watch the Belletrist + BookClub video. With in-depth author interviews led by Emma and Karah, Belletrist + BookClub creates an immersive experience with high-quality video content where you can see and hear authors discuss their books in their own words.

Authors leading you deeper into the book.

BookClub is a one-stop shop for people who love learning about books. In Belletrist + BookClub, you can discover new books selected by Emma and Karah, participate in live audio book discussions, and actively engage with other readers and the authors themselves.

Book discussions you love, right at your fingertips.

Whereas ordinary book clubs are limited by space and time, BookClub is always open for discussion and discovery. Outside of the Belletrist Book Club, you can find and join virtual book clubs, connect with other book lovers online, and get notified when people are talking about books on your shelf.
