Chelsea Clinton joins Expedia board of directors

Chelsea Clinton is joining the board of directors of online travel booking site Expedia.

Documents filed with securities regulators say the daughter of defeated US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has joined its 14-member board.

The company is controlled by Barry Diller. Ms Clinton is also a director of another company that Mr Diller controls, IAC/InterActiveCorp.

Expedia did not disclose how much she would be paid, but non-employee directors each earned more than $250,000 in 2015, according to the most recent regulatory filings.

Filings for IAC say Ms Clinton is entitled to receive $300,000 in a mix of stock and cash each year for serving as a director.

The Expedia filing on Friday came a day after publishers Penguin Young Readers announced it will publish a children's book by Ms Clinton on May 30.

The book is called She Persisted.

In the book, Ms Clinton will honour 13 American women "who never take no for an answer", including Harriet Tubman, Sonia Sotomayor and Oprah Winfrey.
