The CBR Gals Network, presents our fourth book club event in partnership with ITP ACTGals, Becoming is a feminist book club that provides a safe space for gals to grow, learn, share ideas and become fuller versions of themselves. Join us over nibbles and drinks for thoughtful conversation, introspection and laughs with some like-minded gals.  This month, we’re reading Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. Pachinko follows a Korean family who emigrates to Japan. This character-driven historical fiction features a large ensemble of characters who battle racism and sexism in 20th century Japan.

The cost of this event covers food. Drinks will be available to purchase.

Join us for our June “Gals, Becoming” meetup at Highball Express on 29  July, from 6 to 8PM.

About this Event

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? All ages are welcome to attend. Our age ranges typically from 19 – 65. Must be 18+ to drink alcoholic beverages.

What are the conditions of the “Gals, Becoming” Book Club?

Membership and is free, but each event costs $10 to cover the cost of nibbles. Additionally, becoming a member is a monthly commitment. To become a member, attendees must: 

  • Attend three consecutive monthly meetings, to be held on the last Thursday of each month at a central location.
    • Note: After becoming a member, attendance is required at two of every three meetings. We think it’s important for gals to consistently attend meetings in order to form close relationships with other members.
  • Come to each meeting well-versed in the chosen book. Gals can “read” the book in whatever format you want, just come ready to chat about the book.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is plenty of parking but we recommend rideshare or carpool!

Is there any penalty if I RSVP and do not show up? We understand things happen last minute, but our events have limited spots. If something comes up and you don’t cancel your ticket, you will not be allowed to RSVP to our events for the rest of the month. We want every gal to have a chance for a spot!
