Remember how a few months ago, Malala Yousafzai finished her studies in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford and announced to the world she’d be taking it easy for a little while?
Turns out the Nobel Prize laureate, girls rights activist and Taliban shooting survivor has been working on a digital book club in her spare time!
Yep, Malala has teamed up with subscription book service Literati to help feature inspiring writers who portray under-represented voices.

I’ve always loved to read — and to share great books with my friends. I’m honoured to be starting my first book club with @Literati. Sign up to join me and together we’ll explore books from new voices and prominent writers — women with bold ideas and storytellers who show the world from their unique perspective. Link in bio.📚
Much like Oprah’s Book Club, each month, Malala will choose a book to later read and discuss with her subscribers. She’ll share her own personal notes and insights plus there’s an app where you can connect with Malala and others reading the same book.
“People have heard my story already. I think it’s time for people to listen to other women’s stories as well,” she says on the Literati website.
Her club’s called ‘Fearless’ and she’s one of five prominent figures curating selections for Literati including basketball star Stephen Curry and entrepreneur Richard Branson.
And you won’t even have to wait too long to join up. Malala’s book club starts in October. Head to Literati.com for all the info and pricing.
