    HI there,
    Can you let me know who the interviewer is? She mentioned she loves memoirs and I do to. I’d love to hear some of her favourite memoirs.

    Thanks so much Erin and Jessie! I had heard a bit of Jessie’s CBC interview with Shelagh Coles. I was very excited to see this interview posted as I had just bought the book after our Book Club meet. 🦋

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
