Book Club: Women in Readership

Women In Readership – A Women’s Leadership Book Club

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!” Our book club, Women in Readership, creates space for you to come together with other women to read great books, discuss great ideas, and create great lives for yourselves and your family.  Women in Readership 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!)

The Book Club meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 5:45 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. We hope you can join us!
