The JourneyWoman Book Club
Join us on the third Wednesday of each month

Click HERE to Read our 2021 Book Club Selections List up to December 2021 

We host JourneyWoman Book Club discussions on Zoom on the third Wednesday of every month at 8 pm EST (check your local time here). You can find registration details on our Events Calendar. Discussion questions and author bios are provided in advance. You do not have to have read the book to attend. All are welcome!

There is no charge to join a meeting but we try to cover our costs through an optional ‘Pay What you Can’ model. Sessions are recorded and shared for those who aren’t able to participate live. We welcome your suggestions and ideas at any time, either via email or by filling out this feedback form here.

To Register: We’re not event experts so we use Eventbrite. Upon registering for your first ticket with Eventbrite, you should be prompted to create an account. You’ll need this in order to access the Zoom link for the event. All ticket and receipt emails will come from Eventbrite and not JourneyWoman. We do not keep private purchase information on our website, nor will we ever request it via email. – Carolyn Ray and Wendy Brook, your Book Club co-hosts

ABOUT THE BOOK

Buy at your local book store, or here: 

“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth.
What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
– Anne Lamont, Bird by Bird
