5 Of The Most Empowering Books From Reese’s Book Club

It’s safe to say Reese Witherspoon knows a thing or two about strong female characters. Over the past two decades, the actress has portrayed a diverse range of women — from Harvard-bound Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde,” to Madeline Martha Mackenzie in “Big Little Lies.”

Now, she shares her love for storytelling through a book club called Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine on Audible. (Hello Sunshine is the media company founded by Reese Witherspoon to celebrate women and amplify their voices.) For this venture, Witherspoon picks must-read, unique stories by and about complex women.

To celebrate Women’s History Month, we teamed up with Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine on Audible to share five empowering books from Witherspoon’s list that are brought to life through powerful audio performances.
