If you follow Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon on Instagram, you would already be knowing that the Oscar-winning actress loves reading books. So much so that, what started off as a few beach reads and Instagram posts has become a social media book club named #rwbookclub for her fans. Taking her love for books to the next level, news is that the Legally Blonde-actress is set to step into the publishing world by launching her own lifestyle book.
Witherspoon announced about her book on October 13. She said in a statement, “I’m thrilled to be writing my first book with Touchstone (publisher)…It’s a unique opportunity for me to share funny anecdotes about my Southern upbringing and give people a glimpse into my idea of Southern living.” The “southern influence lifestyle book” will contain “personal essays about the people and places that influenced her” and her pictures too.
“We are overjoyed to publish Reese Witherspoon… Her ability to marshal the resources of social media and traditional media, while staying true to the most appealing aspects of her Southern upbringing, is inspiring,” Susan Moldow, Publisher of Touchstone, said.
Reese Witherspoon’s lifestyle book is expected to be out in 2018. It’s noted that she also has a lifestyle brand called Draper James which is southern-inspired too.
