Emma Watson’s nascent feminist book club counts Chicago P.D. star Sophia Bush among its members, and the actress can’t wait to get reading.
“It always excites me when I find like-minded women in this industry who are working to uplift women,” Bush told EW and PEOPLE on Sunday’s Golden Globes red carpet. “And I think, in particular, to see Emma trailbazing — she’s so young, and she’s so passionate, and that excites me, that there’s other women who are really jazzed about this.”
Those other women include U.S. soccer player Abby Wambach, singer Kate Voegele, and some 74,000 Goodreads members, who have joined the book club, dubbed “Our Shared Shelf.”
“We all started chatting on Twitter, and you know, I sort of took a moment and thought, ‘I’m talking to Emma Watson and my friend Abby Wambach, and we’re starting a book club, and this is crazy,’” Bush said.
The book club’s first selection, per Watson, is Gloria Steinem’s latest memoir My Life on the Road.
“A lot of people have already started reading it, and Gloria Steinem’s excited, and that’s pretty much the craziest sentence that’s ever come out of my mouth,” Bush said.
