Woman's Book Club

Today we have over 300 members meeting throughout Snohomish County, Washington. But our club began with 23 women living in the new town of Everett over 125 years ago.

We continue to do what those women did: share ideas, learn from each other, find inspiration, work to better our community, and read good books.

"The fellowship created in Book Club among well-read, civil, sharing women is unique." M.C.
