Just think of the drama Oprah Winfrey could have avoided if she had a resident librarian to tell her why choosing Jeanine Cummins’s controversial novel American Dirt—which many readers see as culturally and racially appropriative —would be a bad move for Oprah’s Book Club.
Witherspoon is already busy starring in and executive producing the film and TV adaptations of books she’s selected for her book club (like Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere, for example), so you can’t expect her to be the only one checking out and chatting about the books.
The paid job position entails chatting with Witherspoon herself to "spark entertaining conversation with our book club community across Instagram and YouTube," of course, but you also have to be someone who makes your boss laugh.
The actor and producer has been running her successful Hello Sunshine book club for a couple of years, but there was always one thing missing—a resident librarian.
