We know you’re always looking for a great adventure. Whether it’s Hiking Hut to Hut in British Columbia, Alpine Backpacking in the Snowy Mountains, enjoying a San Juan Islands Exploration, or making discoveries on the On the Camino de Santiago, we’re sure to find Adventuresses like you out in the outdoors and eager to adventure near and far. Sometimes though, we also find adventures in other places: between the pages of a book.
Join Us in 2021 for Literary Adventures via the AGC Book Club
We were looking for a way to stay connected and take on some literary adventures while our literal adventures are somewhat paused, and found that reading and discussing travel-themed books was the perfect fix.
If you’re looking for an antidote to travel fever and miss the camaraderie of AGC Adventuresses, or you love to read and share your experience with a book, join our virtual book club! Each month, we will read a women-centric adventure or travel-themed book, and come together (virtually) to discuss it.
What could be better than a group of like-minded ladies taking on literary adventures together? We are even hoping to get a few of the authors to join us!
