What we're about

The Women’s National Book Association was established in 1917 and will be celebrating the organization’s centennial in 2017 with a series of literary events nationwide, a publication celebrating the history of women in the world of books, a list of 100 essential books by women authors, and a grant to a non-profit literacy organization—culminating in a gala celebration in October 2018 where the next WNBA Award winner will be honored.

The WNBA-SF chapter is a vibrant, broad-based group of women interested in books: reading, writing, and publishing. Check out our exciting calendar of events!
