The Zoe Ball Book Club is a part of Zoe’s brand new ITV show every Saturday and Sunday morning at 8.30am. We want you to join us reading 10 fantastic books over the summer. The special Book Club segments will run on Sundays from the 17th June. Each week Zoe will discuss one of our specific book choices with a celebrity guest. There will be a special film from the author telling the story, so anyone who hasn’t read the book can join in the show.
The Zoe Ball on Saturday and Zoe Ball on Sunday shows are produced by Cactus TV, run by Amanda Ross. Amanda was behind the Richard and Judy Book Club and the TV Book Club. Amanda's chosen all the books along with a panel of experts who all have fantastic reading taste, and the team are confident there is something for everyone. Zoe will be reading along with you at home and is really looking forward to hearing what everyone else thinks on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook @ZBoS or #ZBoS. We know not everyone will absolutely love every book, but we are sure you will enjoy reading them all, and maybe try a few new genres!
Zoe says “I adore reading so I’m beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to bring a book club back to TV. I’m so excited to read all the brilliant titles on our list, and can’t wait to chat about each and every one of them with my wonderful guests and hear what viewers across the country think too – we’ll have a wide range of books that should hopefully encourage everyone to try something new! Thanks to our esteemed panel we can be sure they are splendid reads."
The Zoe Ball Book Club is in association with Specsavers.
Specsavers' co-founder Dame Mary Perkins says “There is an obvious link between reading and good eyesight, but everyone should be able to enjoy books, so I am delighted that Specsavers is supporting this fantastic return of the TV Book Club. The first selection of books looks great – truly something for everyone. And being able to watch well known faces discuss them on TV should make them really accessible and encourage even more people to enjoy reading. I can’t wait to get started on these books.”
Specsavers is a partnership of 2,000 locally-run businesses throughout the world all committed to delivering high quality, affordable optical and hearing care in the communities that they serve. The company has long been committed to supporting initiatives that encourage reading and the love of literature in all forms.
