Five Questions for Jennifer Dwork at Book of the Month

“We want to bring the best stories to our members—no matter where they’re coming from.”

Choosing books to read can be a difficult task. Every month, there seems to be hundreds of books that are released and it’s nearly impossible to keep track of everything. Luckily, Book of the Month, the subscription-based e-commerce book club, eases this burden. Twelve times a year, the Book of the Month board and judges select a list of books from which the subscribers can choose; it, along with a personal letter of endorsement from a BOTM judge, is mailed to your door.

Jennifer Dwork, Head of Content Development & Editorial at BOTM, was kind enough to partake in our ongoing Catapult Extra interview series about the workings of this literary organization.
