The Los Angeles Unified School District and Snap Inc. have teamed up with some of your favorite celebs for the new Snap Original series, “The A-List Book Club.” In the short videos, celebrities (Alicia Keys, Russell Westbrook, Kendall Jenner and Noah Centineo) share their favorite books of the moment and read an excerpt. Los Angeles Unified students can swipe up to receive free copies of the books, which are funded by charitable donations to LA Students Most in Need. If you’re not a student, you’ll want to pick up a copy on your own after hearing the celebs’ rave reviews.
As part of the series, songstress Alicia Keys recommends Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson, a collection of poems about what it was like growing up as an African American in the ’60s and ’70s “There’s something about this beautiful book that allows you to almost hear it like a song,” she says. Be sure to catch her reading an excerpt over on Snapchat.
