YOUTUBE DEBUTS OFFICIAL TRAILER AND ANNOUNCES INAUGURAL AUTHORS FOR NEW "BOOKTUBE" LEARNING SERIES

Top authors Malcolm Gladwell, Margaret Atwood, James Patterson, and Melinda Gates come to YouTube for new monthly book club launching October 17, 2019 on YouTube.com/Learning

WHAT:

The next chapter of book clubs is here! Following the critically acclaimed BookTube special, featuring Michelle Obama (Becoming), YouTube has announced BookTube, a new monthly learning series featuring the world's most renowned authors. YouTube has released the official trailer for episode one of "BookTube" - an all-new series that launches October 17, 2019 on YouTube.com/Learning. A new episode will air the third Thursday of each month.

"BookTube" is the dream monthly book club meeting that everyone is invited to join. Each episode of this YouTube Original series features a small 'book club,' which consists of one of the world's best selling authors, a moderator, and top YouTube creators having an engaging conversation about the author's latest book. Episode one features Malcolm Gladwell (The Tipping Point and Talking to Strangers), and future episodes will feature best-selling authors Margaret Atwood (Handmaid's Tale and The Testaments), James Patterson (Alex Cross), and Melinda Gates (The Moment of Lift).

The trailer highlights episode one's featured author, Malcolm Gladwell, a New York Times bestseller, as he discusses his latest piece of groundbreaking nonfiction literature - Talking to Strangers - which is a powerful examination of our interactions with people we don't know. Malcolm Gladwell is joined by guest moderator Derek Muller, the creator behind the Veritasium YouTube channel, and BookTubers Nai'a Perkins (NaiaReadsAndSmiles), Danielle Bainbridge (Origin of Everything) and Ellias Hoang (Ellias) to chat about the ideas behind his new book, his Jamaican roots, and the only five liquids he drinks.

The series is produced by Boardwalk Pictures and YouTube. Executive Producers include Andrew Fried, Dane Lillegard, and Jordan Wynn at Boardwalk Pictures. Supervising Producer for YouTube is Lauren Vrazilek, former Deputy Press Secretary to First Lady Michelle Obama and Media Consultant for the Becoming Book Tour. Jenya James Hamidi serves as Co-Executive Producer. "BookTube" is the latest series from a slate of new learning focused Originals coming to YouTube.
