Belles Lettres Book Club with Alisa Ellie

  • 906 World Cultural Center 906 Broadway San Francisco United States (map)

A story is always better if you have someone to share it with.

Reading is often seen as a mean to achieve a goal. More often we open the books only to improve our skills and use them as a tool to be more efficient. If the books we read are all about work, how can we call it a hobby?

Alisa Ellie, Ukrainian by origin, moved to the US in 2017 to start her life anew. She was always passionate about reading and writing, and the new country opened up new horizons for her.

Alisa launched and joined the #bookstagram community to find like-minded people and share her affection for books. She gained a vast audience and partnered with many publishers, writers and brands such as Penguin Random House, BookSparks, Amazon Publishers, Scribd, Michel Guyon, Steve Copling, Page Anchor, Happy Socks x Barnes-n-Noble, Health Tea Book Crate, Jord Watches and Silverleaf.

Alisa was a guest blogger for Katherine Heigl’s celebrity blog Those Heavenly Days. Her article 5 Fun Adventures To Get Outside Before It’s Too Cold was featured on the blog.

Her goal is to share the best works of literature through Belles Lettres Book Club, to help establish a habit of reading and unite readers around this habit.

"Reading is another way of traveling the worlds that never become real. We all eager to embark on a new adventure and I am more than happy to quench this wanderlust.”
