PALO ALTO, Calif., May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Today, FABLE, the pioneering social reading app founded by lauded tech industry leader and creative visionary PADMASREE WARRIOR, proudly launches the LEVAR BURTON BOOK CLUB. FABLE uniquely allows members to read together while sharing highlights, comments, links, and pictures to discuss books and is a purposeful way to build fun and safe communities with family, friends and colleagues, with no advertising and no unlawful selling of user data.  Every three months BURTON will add three new books to the Folio and select one book each month from the Folio for his Book Club to read together.

FABLE Folios spotlight exceptional book recommendations handpicked by tastemakers, experts, acclaimed authors, world-class athletes, and industry titans. BURTON leads the first premium FABLE Book Club and joins Folio curators such as Paulo Coelho, David Sedaris, and Jasmine Guillory, comedian Luvvie Jones, psychologist Adam Grant, chef Wolfgang Puck, athletes like Diana Nyad, and more, whose recommendations are available as part of the app’s free content. Each Folio comes with a custom Book Club Discussion Guide to help readers enjoy the book with their community.

For his first Folio, BURTON hand-selected books written exclusively by Black authors to read alongside FABLE’S premium subscription members. The first book BURTON has chosen to read with his book club is James Baldwin’s “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” with which he shares a deeply personal connection.

“For my first FABLE Folio I selected books that have had a tremendous impact on my life,” said BURTON. “At a time when Black people had very little representation in the publishing industry, Baldwin delivered a debut novel that introduced to the world an essential voice in American Literature. I invite everyone to join me on FABLE as I am both inspired and energized by the opportunity to not only re-read this story but also share my point of view and hear everyone else’s as we read together.”  – LEVAR BURTON

Other books and stories in BURTON’s free Folio include “Parable of the Sower” by Octavia Butler and “The Fire This Time” edited by Jesmyn Ward. Every three months BURTON will add three new books to the Folio and select one book each month from the Folio for his Book Club to read together.
