The Dublin chapter has been in place since 2017. We have about 6 core members 30 or so active members. Pre COVID we would have had lively meetings averaging about 25 ladies. Numbers dropped a lot during lockdown where we had zoom meetings. It was lovely being back in The Rag Trader sitting around the open fire, on comfy seats with cocktails in hand for the last few months. Great to see new faces each monthGrab your seat!
What we are reading in May: Lost & Found by Kathryn Schulz
Eighteen months before Kathryn Schulz’s father died, she met the woman she would marry.
In Lost & Found, she weaves the story of those relationships into a brilliant exploration of the role that loss and discovery play in all of our lives. The resulting book is part memoir, part guidebook to living in a world that is simultaneously full of wonder and joy and wretchedness and suffering–a world that always demands both our gratitude and our grief.
A staff writer at The New Yorker and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Schulz writes with curiosity, tenderness, erudition, and wit about our finite yet infinitely complicated lives. Lost & Found is an enduring account of love in all its many forms from one of the great writers of our time.
An olive branch to start a conversation.

Join us and discover a wide variety of new books, new authors, new friends and enjoy a glass of wine all at the same time. We’re delighted to welcome you into The Gloss!
