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!”

MOST INSPIRING AUTHORS 

“Nora Ephron wrote so honestly and with such economy—I just went down a deep rabbit hole of rereading her essays. As an actor who also became a writer, I’ve always related to Carrie Fisher’s books, and I grew up studying Dorothy Parker and Flannery O’Connor. These women had such distinct voices.”
