Meet fabulous women from Naperville and read good books! We are open to women of all backgrounds who live in Naperville.
Once a month, we meet for our book discussions, rotating to a different woman's home or a local venue. The genre varies.
We strive to select books that will provoke a thoughtful and intellectual discussion. Questions are prepared in advance to guide the ~20-minute discussion and everyone is given a chance to voice their thoughts and opinions.

Occasionally, we plan FUN and social events per month so that we can continue getting to know each other. Examples include: wine tasting parties, weekend brunch, coffee chats.
We keep the group small, so everyone can get to know each other. Come to laugh, share stories and make new friends who live locally in Naperville!
