Barnes & Noble Selects Sarah Langan’s Good Neighbors as February 2021 National Book Club Selection
Readers Invited to a Free Virtual Book Club Event Featuring Sarah Langan on Tuesday, March 2
Barnes & Noble, Inc., with bookstores in every state across the United States, today announced Good Neighbors by Sarah Langan as the February 2021 selection for the Barnes & Noble Book Club, a monthly book club designed for readers across the country to discuss the most compelling books. Barnes & Noble is selling a special, exclusive Book Club edition of Good Neighbors as well as hosting a free LIVE virtual event on B&N’s Facebook Page with Sarah Langan about the book on Tuesday, March 2, at 3pm East Coast Time. Customers can purchase the exclusive edition, featuring a bonus essay from the Sarah Langan, in-stores or online at BN.com.
“Good Neighbors is a chilling dive into the mysteries hidden beneath the veneer of suburbia” said Jackie De Leo, Vice President, Bookstore, Barnes & Noble. “This darkly humorous and brutal story of neighbors dealing with a sudden local tragedy is a riveting look at motherhood, friendships and social class. We are sure our Book Club readers will be as enthralled by the story as we were.”
Barnes & Noble invites customers to join the B&N Book Club Facebook Group to share their views of the book as well as attend the virtual Book Club event one month after publication to hear from Sarah Langan.
“When I learned Barnes & Noble had chosen Good Neighbors as its February pick, I was so excited I could hardly talk. I have shopped at B&Ns all my life,” said Sarah Langan. “In my twenties, I did my writing in the B&N coffee shop on West 82 Street and Broadway. I now live in Los Angeles and bring my daughters to the Studio City and Grove stores. The last time we were there, I was able to say: ‘You see that table, with the book club books? I’m going to be on that table.’ I am so honored.”
The virtual event with Sarah Langan on March 2 will be hosted on Barnes & Noble’s Facebook Page. Before the virtual event, customers can also join in discussion at their convenience on the new B&N Book Club Facebook group and on social media via the hashtag #BNBookClub.
