Lauren Graham’s Chic Book Club Bag Fits Just About Everything
Gilmore Girls actress Lauren Graham has always enjoyed a “steady diet” of compelling literature. “My friends and I used to pass around anything we’d just finished—we had our own little community library,” she says. These days the three-time author (who recently released In Conclusion, Don't Worry About It, an expanded version of the 2017 commencement speech she gave at her hometown high school), is in a “de facto book club” with her editor and another novelist. “We write, talk about books, and then drink. Ideal book-club activities!”
