TURN EVERY DRIVE INTO A GREAT STORY

SAY HELLO TO THE REESE’S BOOK CLUB APP

Buick is proud to announce a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Hello Sunshine, the media company founded by Reese Witherspoon that’s changing the narrative for women–and that’s home to Reese’s Book Club. Together, we’ve created the Reese’s Book Club In-Vehicle App, powered by Audiobooks.com. The available app features book recommendations and a curated set of podcasts that put women at the center of the story. These selections are now available to stream exclusively in properly equipped 2020 Encore GX models.

EXCLUSIVE, SEAMLESS, EMPOWERING

The Reese’s Book Club app is built into select Buick Infotainment Systems so you can listen on the go. The app is powered by Audiobooks.com to offer an in-vehicle audio experience exclusively for Buick Encore GX owners. Take the wheel of a Buick and discover the joy of modern technologies designed around you.

REESE’S BOOK CLUB AUDIOBOOKS AND HELLO SUNSHINE PODCASTS

AVAILABLE IN SELECT BUICK INFOTAINMENT SYSTEMS

AN INNOVATIVE COLLABORATION

SHIFTING STORYTELLING INTO HIGH GEAR

Like all Hello Sunshine initiatives, the Reese’s Book Club app celebrates women at the center of the story. So it’s only natural that General Motors engaged a female-led team of engineers to develop the app. Led by Daphne Zargar, Sarah Cleveland and Hayley Serr, the team collaborated with Hello Sunshine to create a fully integrated In-Vehicle App—no phone needed. Available on select Buick Encore GX models, the app allows you to travel accompanied by a collection of audio content including Reese’s Book Club books and Hello Sunshine podcasts.
