Who we are
It all began with a simple idea – to find new friends in a strange city.
HOW THE GLOSS CAME TO BE
From its inception in August 2008, The Gloss now has over 150,000 members in 15 countries and 150+ cities across the globe, making it the largest of its kind in the world. The book club originated in London, UK as The Girly Book Club, but now has strong holds in many parts of the world including the USA, Canada, and Australasia.
All Gloss chapters read the same book at the same time and meet up once a month in a centrally located venue to discuss that month’s book. These meetings draw anywhere from 10 to 100 attendees each month. The meetings are all conducted by a local host and held the end of the month and follow the same format. The Gloss works as a global community; members can interact through the website or social media channels, or if they are the travelling type, head to one of the other global chapters.
The Gloss Book Club provides a relaxed and casual atmosphere to meet friends in new cities, as well as connecting individuals with others who share their love of good books.
Where we are
With over 150+ chapters across 15 countries, and over 150 books read! The Gloss is a worldwide success.
If you’re traveling why not drop into another chapter’s meeting or if you’re on the move why not start a new chapter in your new home?
Our goal is to bring The Gloss to all parts of the world and entice women from different backgrounds, ages and cultures to join us
– help spread the word.
