Barnes & Noble, Inc., the world’s largest retail bookseller, today announced The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue as the August 2020 selection for the Barnes & Noble Book Club, a monthly book club designed for readers across the country to discuss the most compelling books.

Customers can purchase the exclusive edition in-stores or online at BN.com.

The Pull of the Stars is an unexpectedly timely novel bringing readers to the maternity ward of a Dublin hospital during the height of the 1918 Spanish Influenza pandemic,” said Jackie De Leo, Vice President, Bookstore, Barnes & Noble. “It is a story of war, death, birth, family traumas and independence that will leave our Book Club readers wanting to talk about it. We hope everyone is able to join us for the virtual event in September to discuss.”
