What we're about

This Meetup is intended for those who love to read and just want a reason to get together, chat shit and drink wine : )

I want to encourage a creative, thought provoking and open minded environment so we can all get together discuss/ debate what's on our minds without feeling judged or criticized.

We will meet once a month around the Dubai Marina area, discuss our book of the month, drink wine (no pressure though) and vote on next month's book. Fiction books for the most part- but I am open to suggestions.

All (ladies) are welcome to join, you don't have to drink or live in the Marina to be a member. We will get together at cafes, bars or even my apartment for meetings once a month. I look forward to meeting you all!

Ladies only please!
