Book Club: Women in Readership

Women In Readership – A Women’s Leadership Book Club & more…

As women, we need connection and support to thrive at home and at work. Sometimes, our best ideas go undeveloped just because there was no one beside us to say “You can do it!”

We have created the space for you to come together with other women to read great books, discuss great ideas, and create great lives for ourselves and our families. The discussion is always lively! Feel free to bring dinner.

We are changing this group up some. We will still be reading books, but decided to have alternate months as a social. We have so much fun at the book club, we decided to have even more fun! Besides, it will give you 2 months to read the book 🙂

For September, we will be discussing Sheryl Sandberg’s and Adam Grant’sOption B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy“- that’s our affiliate link to Amazon. This book club is open to women in all walks of life and all career levels. The only requirement is that you be open to discussing new ideas (and hopefully, you’ll make time to read the book each month!)

We will meet the fourth Friday of each month, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. at The Avenue, 141 N. Martinwood Road in West Knoxville to discuss that month’s book and how we can act on the new ideas we learn.  October will be a social.

I hope you can join us! The book club is just one of many opportunities we provide for women.
