NEW YORK (AP) — Sarah Jessica Parker is adding another credit to her life as a bookworm.

The "Sex and the City" actress is serving as honorary chair of the American Library Association's newly created Book Club Central. The library association told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the club will recommend books throughout the year and will formally launch in Chicago on June 24, during the ALA's annual conference.

Parker said in a statement that books have been her "constant companions" for much of her life. She recently started her own imprint with Penguin Random House and last year introduced J.K. Rowling at a PEN gala, where the "Harry Potter" author was being honored by the literary and human rights organization.
