Next Meetup

October's Girly Book Club
New month, new book, GBC ladies! This month we’re bringing you Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, the third novel from author Ball Kaur Jaswal depicting a dark comedy set in a Punjabi immigrant enclave in London. When Nikki, a young woman from a traditional Indian family, takes a creative writing job at her local temple, with visions of emancipating the women of the community she left behind as a self-important teenager, she's shocked to discover a group of barely literate women who have no interest in her ideals. Yet to her surprise, the white dupatta of the widow hides more than just their modesty. These are women who have spent their lives in the shadows of fathers, brothers and husbands; being dutiful, raising children and going to temple, but whose inner lives are as rich and fruitful as their untold stories. As they begin to open up to each other about womanhood, sexuality, and the dark secrets within the community, Nikki realizes that the illicit nature of the class may place them all in danger. We look forward to discussing with you at book club this month! Are You New to the Book Club? We’re happy to have you! New members are always welcome at every meeting.

    What we're about

    New to Hong Kong? Or just want to discuss great books with like-minded friends? 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.

    Check out our home site to find out more about how we are taking over the world - one book at a time!
