Book Club

The Woman’s Club of Red Bank Book Club!

Woman's Club Book Club

Literacy has been a core mission of the Woman’s Club of Red Bank since 1896. The club was first formed as a literary society. Paired with community service, another core mission, the members of our Woman’s Club began to teach women in the community how to read.

Today “literacy” has a broader meaning. It is still part of our mission statement, but it also encompasses scholarship programs, supporting local authors, promoting our community partner, the Red Bank Public Library, and now our Book Club. We invite you to join the Woman’s Club and support “modern literacy” with us.

The Book Club is BACK! Our next Book Club meeting is November 9th from 7-9pm. We’ll be talking about The Lions of Fifth Avenue.

Our book club first launched in the Spring of 2020, the onset of COVID-19 was a great time for people to read more, but not exactly a good time to start a book club.
