The Wall Street Journal is launching a new online book club this month with the discussions to be led by prominent writers.  Drawing on the fact that most writers pick apart and sometimes emulate other works they admire, guest hosts will select a book that has influenced them and guide participants through an analysis of the work.  Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love and the recent The Signature of All Things) will lead the first discussion of Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall, which has inspired her writing of historical fiction.  Sign up for the book club, pose questions and discuss on Twitter, and then participate in an online discussion with Ms. Gilbert in late February.  Future hosts include fantasy novelist Neil Gaiman and thriller writer Gillian Flynn!
