Kaia Gerber is launching an Instagram book club.
The 18-year-old model has come up with the idea to connect with others during self-isolation amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
She shared on Instagram: ”i know we are all feeling isolated right now, so I was trying to think of easy ways we can stay connected (beyond just scrolling) and decided i’m gonna start a book club. i read a lot on my own, but would love to be able to talk to you guys about it … so every week i’m gonna post a book to my stories and the following week i’ll jump on live (sometimes with a friend, writer, guest etc.) so we can all talk about the book that week! … i want to start with a new favourite I’m actually rereading right now: Normal People by Sally Rooney. download it, borrow it, order it if you can! let’s all meet here and talk next week (sic)”
She claimed: ”Well, I always like to say, I model – but I am not a model. Because once you put ‘a’ or ‘an’ ahead of a title, it staples that to you … So, my advice to others who want to navigate new territories would be to not hesitate and just do what would make you proud. Never box yourself in.”
