What is The Girly Book Club you ask?

The concept is simple. We’re a global book club for likeminded women to discuss great books! All members of the book club read the same book over the same period; members then meet up in their respective cities at the end of each month to discuss the book and exchange views. This forum provides a rare and relaxed atmosphere for women to meet other like-minded women over a glass of wine and share a common passion.
