QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
The Girly Book Club began life as a tiny start-up company in London, England in 2008. Since then, step by step, we’ve worked incredibly hard to build up from our humble beginnings into a serious for-[small!]-profit company, which runs book clubs and connects women all over the world.
We want to continue sharing our success with many more women in many more cities. But like with any expanding and aspiring global enterprise, development and growth only come with investment. It is for this reason that we charge a small fee for attendance at our book clubs. While many book clubs don’t charge to attend, The Girly Book Club isn’t an ordinary book club – it offers our members so much more including a well-researched book list, fully planned events, great partnership perks from likeminded brands, global social networking and discussion questions; author events and social outings inclusion fabulous free movie premieres. And as our thousands of members from around the world have happily told us, it’s a small price to pay for the fantastic benefits in return.
Tickets are non-transferable, non-refundable.
The Girly Book Club is as it sounds for women only. Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome to join us regardless of age. There are many book clubs that welcome both male and female participants but the Girly Book Club is striving to foster all female friendships in a safe and welcoming environment, as a result we respectfully ask that only women attend our meetings and participate in our discussions. We do however, read books by men and invite on occasion male authors to attend our events.
All our prior reading lists are available online for anyone to access and read.
We read a lot. We work with the big and small publishers to identify the best new books out there and then we hold a global VOTE to decide which book will become this month’s GBC title. Curating our book list is what we spend the most time on and we take this role very seriously.
To be considered as a GBC read the book must be available in paperback globally and be reasonably priced.
For publishers and authors looking to get in touch – please email us with any book suggestions you might have – we are always open to new authors and titles but please bear in mind the above criteria.
