WHO WE ARE

It all began with a simple idea – to find new friends in a strange city.

From its inception in August 2008, The Girly Book Club (GBC) now has over 100,000 members in 12 countries and 120+ cities across the globe, making it the largest of its kind in the world. The book club originated in London, UK but now has strong holds in many parts of the world.

All GBC chapters read the same book at the same time and meet up once a month in a centrally located venue to discuss that month’s book. These meetings draw anywhere from 15 to 100 women each month. The meetings are all conducted by a local host and held in the same week and follow the same format. The GBC works as a global sorority, members can interact through the website or social media channels, or if they are the travelling type head to one of the other global chapters.

The GBC provides a relaxed and casual atmosphere to meet friends in new cities as well as connecting women with others who share their literary interests.

WHERE WE ARE

With over 120+ chapters across 12 countries the GBC is a worldwide success. If you’re traveling why not drop into another chapter’s meeting or if you’re on the move why not start a new chapter in your new home? Our goal is to bring the GBC to all parts of the world and entice women from different backgrounds, ages and cultures to join us
– help spread the word.

GBC COVID-19 RESPONSE

I am writing to share an update on behalf of all of us at The Girly Book Club as we manage COVID-19. As we all know, the events of the past days and weeks have been unprecedented and our team continues to monitor and navigate this rapidly changing situation with the rest of the world.

At the GBC, we care deeply about doing what we can to keep our people and communities well – we are grounded in this intention, which makes difficult choices a little easier to make.

As a result, we have cancelled ALL of our global in-person monthly meetings for March. As a result, we will be holding a GLOBAL GBC Book Club, which we hope will appeal to our members far and wide (more info below.)

We’ll be honoring all tickets sold for March meetings and transferring them to April’s meetings or you can request a refund if you’d prefer.

Stay well. 
Erin Woodward
