About

Book Picnic

Glasgow Women’s Library’s Digital Book Group is welcoming and inspiring, connecting women who like reading with each other and to a host of amazing and surprising new reads. Our aim is to enable people from across Scotland, the UK and we hope internationally, to take part in discussions around books written by women* and to engage with GWL even if they can’t make it through our doors.

We will read a new book from a diverse selection of genres every two months and discuss it in our GWL Digital Book Group on Facebook. Everyone is welcome to join this Facebook group. During the first month we will have time to share our first impressions and general thoughts. We will then discuss the more specific questions toward the end of the second month. You’re always welcome to share your thoughts and questions in our Facebook group.

Taking part in our GWL Digital Book Group is easy and you can get as involved as you like. If you’d like to keep up to date with the latest read and our online discussions, sign up to our newsletter to receive a monthly update. If you’d rather check our website for information, keep an eye on this page to keep abreast of all the latest content and discussions around our latest book. Keep an eye out for our #GWLDigitalReads hashtag on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Please use it to share your reading progress, thoughts, reviews, etc.
