We know you’re always looking for a great adventure. Whether it’s exploring on Blue Ridge Rambling, or enjoying Ireland's Castles, Culture, and Hiking, we’re sure to find Adventuresses like you exploring the outdoors and experiencing cultures around the world. But sometimes we find adventures in other places: between the pages of a book.
That’s why we officially launched a monthly 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, join our virtual book club. Each month, we will read an adventure or travel-themed book, and come together (virtually) to discuss it with you!
What could be better than a group of like-minded ladies taking on literary adventures together?
