Book Club

book club

Read a great book, join a meaningful conversation and strengthen literacy in women.

Each month the Daughters of Penelope Foundation Book Club offers a Main Selection, a Greek Selection and a Just For Fun/Gift Selection to our members and anyone interested in books!   Our selections include fiction, mystery, memoirs and history in addition to some very special cookbooks, gardening guides, great beach reads and humorous books.


How do I participate?

We encourage you to form local book clubs organized by your Daughters of Penelope chapter or amongst a group of your friends.  These book club meetings offer a wonderful opportunity to strengthen the bond of sisterhood through lively discussion. You might discover that some of your “dues only” members who are avid readers will reconnect with the chapter through the social aspect of these meetings. Also, you may find new members for your chapter by inviting non-members to join your book club.

To join the Book Club simply visit this page on a monthly basis! Links to monthly Book Selections and Discussion Questions for the Main and Greek selections will be linked below on the 25th of each month.

The Foundation organizes all the discussion questions at no charge.


How can we help the foundation?

By purchasing your books through the Amazon links on this website, a percentage of your purchases are remitted to the foundation – at no additional charge to you!

Any funds raised through online purchases is earmarked for scholarships so please consider always shopping through the foundation’s website so we can benefit more young women in their pursuit of higher education.

Here’s what you are saying about the Foundation’s Book Club…

We started meeting last February and our 1st selection was Eleni Gage’s North of Ithaca. We began with 5 members and now we are a group of 12 very dedicated members who meet regularly (even in the summer) at a restaurant (which has given us our own private room) and enjoy a lovely dinner as we discuss our current reading.

We’ve been reading books suggested by the Daughters of Penelope Foundation as well as books suggested by our members … as a matter of fact we finished reading Stieg Larssen’s Millennium Trilogy last month.

Happy Reading!
