What we're about

About the group:

LLABC is a social group / book club of women in their 30s who live in the Laurel area. Let's share what we are currently reading, going on in our lives, have some coffee/tea, and make new friends in our area. Events are generally planned within a 35 minute radius of Laurel, MD.

We meet monthly for the *Any* Book Club (usually the first Thursday of the month) and aim to have at least 1-2 additional get-togethers every month (though these are on hold right now with COVID). I know life is busy, so I try to schedule meetups a few weeks ahead.

This group started in May 2019 - if you recently moved to the area, or just want to meet new people and walking into an already-established group is intimidating, this is the group for you! We welcome newcomers and regulars alike.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are planning meetup events with the most current state guidelines in mind.


Group Policies:

RSVPs are required to attend the get-togethers as a courtesy to the organizer and other members. (Some events require the organizer to make group reservations.) Please change your RSVP 24 hours ahead if you need to cancel. Because the group is limited to 50 members, those members who have not RSVPd and attended an event within 3-5 months will be asked to rejoin when they can be active. Profile photo is required for membership to maintain a sense of community.


What is an *Any Book* Book Club?

Instead of reading a predetermined book each month, everyone shares what they are currently reading with the group. This is awesome for people whose reading time is limited, and they want to gear their reading toward their interests, rather than the group's pick. Here's a link to an article describing it (https://bookriot.com/2015/03/04/book-book-club/).
