What we're about

We are a group of young women who live in or near Astoria and want to read great books, meet new people, and have a few drinks (in no particular order). The group has been around since January 2018, and we meet once a week on Wednesdays. There’s usually a mix of regulars and new people attending, typically 8-10 in all. We try to read a book every two weeks but the group is also very laid back; come when you can and if you aren’t quite caught up feel free to still join and hang out…but if you read ahead, no spoilers, please! There is no theme to the type of books we read and the group votes through an online survey to choose what we’ll read next. We’d love for you to join us and look forward to meeting you soon!

Aside from our book club discussions, we also try get together for other fun activities happening around NYC. You can find and join our social group here -

Please note that as this is a women’s only group, we do require that you have a valid picture of yourself upon joining the group to be approved. In order to keep an accurate headcount of active members, we may remove those who have not attended any meetings for long periods of time.
