Love a good read? The Netflix Book Club, which is set to premiere on November 16, 2021, will ensure that viewers get to enjoy a good story in any format, whether page or screen.
Orange Is the New Black's Uzo Aduba will do the honors of hosting the debut project by providing fans with an inside look at what it takes to bring a story to life. Expect talks with cast members, authors and more masterminds involved in the creative process. The monthly club will coincide with the platform's recent book-to-screen adaptations (a.k.a. your latest obsessions).
"I can't tell you how many times I've asked friends, 'But have you read the book?' the actress said in a statement. "So I'm excited to host Netflix Book Club and bring together loyal book fans, TV and movie obsessives, and the creators behind their favorite stories."

The Netflix Book Club's first pick
Passing by Nella Larsen will kick things off in November. Of course, the Harlem Renaissance-era novel is getting the screen treatment with a Netflix release on November 10. The film stars Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga.
Follow the story of Clare Kendry, who marries a racist man who is unaware of her African-American heritage. Though her friend Irene is in a similar situation—with equally light skin—she decides to stick to her roots rather than change who she is for society. Then, Clare's fascination with Irene becomes quite intense, as it represents the past and identity she's left behind.
