John Green and Rosianna Halse RojasWelcome to the Life’s Library Book Club! Every six weeks, we’ll read and discuss a new book chosen by John Green and Rosianna Halse Rojas. All of the profits from Life’s Library are donated in support of efforts to reduce child and maternal mortality in Sierra Leone. Book club discussion for anyone interested (regardless of paid subscription) will be on our Discord server!

For 2020, we will host 2-3 guest curators who will choose the book for us to read, participate in discussions, and join the Q&A and podcast with Rosianna and John. Our first guest curator in Hank Green in February.
