CBS Films has picked up rights for Simon & Schuster's upcoming book The Christmas Cookie Club, by first-time novelist Ann Pearlman, and plans to adapt into a film.
The story revolves around an annual holiday celebration in which a dozen women trade their homemade cookies. As the evening unfolds, the friends bare their personal adventures of the past 12 months.
"The Christmas Cookie Club" will be published in hardcover by Simon & Schuster's Atria Books in November with a 350,000-copy first printing. The book will also go out through Simon & Schuster's publishing divisions in the U.K., Canada and Australia.
