The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is encouraging supporters to join its progressive book club that begins with Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) new book.

Warren's A Fighting Chance went on sale Tuesday. The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is using the book to rally its members around a senator for whom they've raised more than $1.17 million. The group encourages supporters to purchase and read the book before a national call to discuss it. The group said Warren will participate in the call.

Warren, in her book, credits the PAC for supporting her from the start of her senatorial career.

"The Progressive Change Campaign Committee signed on early with the petition encouraging me to run, and they stayed with me every day right through the election," she wrote.

Stephanie Taylor, cofounder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, announced the book club to the committee's almost 1 million members on Tuesday.

"In 2012, PCCC members rallied around Elizabeth Warren's economic populist message and we were her #1 grassroots supporter," Taylor wrote in a statement. "In 2014, we'll help her rise to #1 on the best seller list. This will help Warren continue to change the national conversation and signal to all Democratic candidates in 2014 that adopting Warren's economic populist message is the way to excite the public and win."

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee book club plans to encourage members to read books every few months and promises a national call with the author at the close of each reading.
