The Girly Book Club, has officially rebranded as The Gloss Inc. With a new brand, logo and website, all things GBC have officially become glossy. Our new mission statement sums up the ethos of the company: “More than a book club, The Gloss starts the conversation—leading to a deeper, more meaningful connection and providing the foundation for friendship.”
We’ve known for some time that the name didn’t adequately represent what we were doing. It served its purpose and it’s time to move on. We’re still a book club for women and non-binary individuals, but we don’t read a lot of “girly” books (as I am sure you’ve noticed) and we’re for a more mature audience. We feel our new name reflects that. It was also time for a refresh; we needed a new site desperately and a new logo to remain relevant in a changing world. We’ve taken the pandemic to truly figure out who we are and what we want to offer to you, our wonderful community of book worms. At our heart, we’re about connection and community and Gloss stands for Glossary – you use it to navigate your way through a book, like we hope you’ll use the Gloss to navigate your way through your life – with the friendships you’ll make.
So what’s new? Besides the logo, name, and website? We still offer a yearly membership that includes entry to all meetings (in-person or online), but now it includes a nifty tote bag, the monthly Meet The Author interview, voting privileges, author events, as well as access to our book giveaways!
