April 2018 GBC Book of the month
By Min Jin Lee
Pachinko follows one Korean family through the generations, beginning in early 1900s Korea with Sunja, the prized daughter of a poor yet proud family, whose unplanned pregnancy threatens to shame them all. Deserted by her lover, Sunja is saved when a young tubercular minister offers to marry and bring her to Japan.

Start a Global Conversation
Through our online social channels and website, the Girly Book Club attracts members from a global audience.
The GBC has been an amazing answer to my quest to find a place for myself to belong and to just be me. I am the mamma to 8 children (foster and biological). Though they are all the loves of my life, I felt like I needed something to cultivate the inner person inside the mom persona and the Girly Book Club has been an answer to that pursuit. I love the books and the fellowship with other bright, engaged women. I look forward to reading the marvelous book club pick and going to book club every month!
I love how friendly and open everyone is at these meetings. As an introvert, I have struggled to find a social circle right for me. With The Girly Book Club, everyone is welcome to come as they are and enjoy an evening out to discuss a shared hobby, reading!
I have been with GBC for about 1.5 yrs. It allowed me to find a great group of friends in a new city, and I love that it gives us all an excuse to get out and see each other. I honestly cannot imagine my life in Minneapolis without these women. All in all, I would recommend GBC to any woman looking to expand her circle and just breathe life and fun into her life.
Love it - so friendly and everyone is someone who has joined alone. Not intimidating at all!
We couldn't be more thrilled working with The Girly Book Club. So many great books and great discussions happen in this community and their ability to bring like-minded readers from around the world is remarkable. We are delighted to be partners with GBC, and see a successful road ahead!
