  • Appreciating the Arts with the Oklahoma GBC
    The Oklahoma Girly Book Club tries to host at least one event outside of book club once a year to appreciate the arts. Last year we were very fortunate to see the Kehindi Wiley exhibit before he was commissioned to do the official portrait of President Obama.Last night we got to see an amazing exhibit of life size paper dresses by Isabel de Borchgrave, in which we got to explore the history of fashion out of paper. It was truly an amazing experience. The museum also celebrated the kick off-of for PRIDE celebrations with models and a red carpet event.The last few days have been hard as I watch the images of children in my country in cages, the sounds of their cries, and the despicable lack of compassion from the government. Even as I got ready for our night out, I thought to myself, how can I enjoy a night out, knowing what is going on in my country? None the less, I got ready and found it was a much-needed respite from the reality we are facing. I also had to remind myself that it was important to attend and participate in this event because the LGBTQ community needs our support, especially in the Midwest. We couldn't help ourselves and briefly talked about Poppy from this month's book "This is How It Always Is".Last night was a reminder of how great our group is and how open and like-minded we are, joined by the love of reading. I strongly believe that reading opens our hearts to different customs, ideals, and compassion. Keep finding these amazing books that open our minds! We need more compassion in the world!Best, Veronica - Oklahoma GBC Host

  • Oklahoma Styles for Halloween
    We just finished our October meeting. We saw new ladies, returning ladies, and regular ladies. I love hearing our personal ladies' stories in relation to the books we read. I always come away feeling empowered by the spirit and strong conviction that our ladies radiate. I could listen to two of our oldest members, Trudi and Suzanne all day. They are best friends and have some amazing stories to tell! Included below are some pictures of some of us dressed up in literary character for our annual October meeting. We had a lot of fun and Cyndi did an amazing job with table decorations.Veronica OKC Girly Book Club

  • Muskoka Host Retreat 2017
    In September 2017 we had the most incredible weekend in Muskoka, Ontario. We invited 12 of our GBC hosts from mostly Ontario based chapters to join us- although we did have the ever so lovely Linda from our Jacksonville, Florida chapter to represent our wonderful Southern neighbors. Not only was the weather beyond perfect but the company was spot on as we discussed best practices and ways to collaborate with each other. It was a good mix of long standing clubs (Ottawa) and brand new chapters (Hamilton) and everyone left not only with some good ideas on how to grow their own chapters but also having learnt something new about themselves. Win, Win! As for me - the founder, I experienced an incredible sense of pride knowing that these are the women who represent the GBC brand and will take forward our message while transforming lives in their own communities.Thank you ladies. You are the best.

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
