What we're about

Do you like to read and welcome a diverse assortment of book genres? Do you enjoy refreshing drinks, delicious meals, exploring local establishments, venues, events and activities? Are you looking to meet new people and make new friends?

This Meet Up group is focused on allowing ladies to meet and discuss books while enjoying some of the above activities (but not limited to the above activities!) while discussing the group's book of the month.

Didn't get a chance to read the current book? That's okay, we would like to see you anyway. We are a friendly and inviting group and will make you feel welcome, so don't hesitate to join the fun!

There are even gatherings where books aren't brought up at all and we will just be out exploring...

Most meetings will take place in the general vicinity of Altamonte Springs and surrounding area (Lake Mary, Winter Park, Maitland, Orlando, Casselberry, etc.).

How we choose our books and calendar of events: During each monthly book club meeting, each lady present makes an anonymous suggestion for the next month's Book, Book Review Venue and Exploring Destination. We draw... and voila - There you have it! Our next schedule of events has been determined. Sometimes we add events that just seem fun to our calendar as well.

Take a look at the Events Page for detailed information on our current book and venue of the month.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events!

Destination Change! Ladies Explore Econ River Wilderness Area

Econ River Wilderness Area

PLEASE NOTE: Blowing Rocks Preserve event is postponed. I received a call back from a message left earlier this week from the Blowing Rocks Preserve manager and learned about some challenges that make this event better to do later in the year if Covid19 restrictions are lifted. Instead, please join the Ladies Book & Explorer's while we go for a hike at the Econ River Wilderness area. What you might expect: Trail walking with a scenic water overview destination and then a return to our vehicles. At some point we will have a 'sit' to enjoy the scenery, take in the nature, and just become part of this unique landscape. Bring water and a snack for the hike if you think you'll need it. We may have lunch someplace afterwards. Park specifics: 3795 Old Lockwood Rd.

February Book Review, "The Thursday Murder Club" by Richard Osman

Please join our online book review February online event while we discuss, "The Thursday Murder Club" by Richard Osman. Please note we've changed our monthly book club meeting to Thursday rather than Friday during this time of online meetings. "The Thursday Murder Club" - In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together they call themselves The Thursday Murder Club. When a local developer is found dead with a mysterious photograph left next to the body, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case. As the bodies begin to pile up, can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it's too late? Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83566014802
