Ever wanted to be part of a book club, but were either too busy traveling around the world or just couldn’t find the right club for you?
#GoGirlReads is a great way for Go Girls near and far to connect online and in person, whether traveling or at home, through an empowering, wanderlusting read.
Every two months, we’ll announce a new book for our community to read together. We’ll give you a link to download or purchase the book, and set up times for our meetup groups to discuss it together in person. We’ll also organize an opportunity for Go Girls to gather online to share their thoughts with one another. And sometimes, we’ll even organize some special time to chat with the author.
Our June/July Book: Kira Salak’s Four Corners
In June and July we’re reading Kira Salak’s Four Corners, the ebook version recently released by our sponsors, Restless Books. From their site:
“Four Corners is Kira Salak’s riveting account of her epic, solo jungle trek across the remote Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea—often called the last frontier of adventure travel. Traveling by dugout canoe and on foot, confronting the dangers and wonders of a largely untouched world, she became the first woman to traverse this remote country and write about it. A New York Times Notable Travel Book, Four Corners: A Journey into the Heart of Papua New Guinea is a must-read for world travelers and adventurous spirits.”
Order your ebook from Amazon, Apple, or Barnes and Noble. On Amazon it’s just $7.99. You can also find printed versions if you so prefer.
Here’s how it works:
Monday, June 2: Book is introduced. Let’s start reading!
Wednesday, July 9: Halfway point all-day discussion with hashtag #gogirlreads. What are your favorite parts of the book? What questions do you have for author Kira Salak (she’ll send her reply later in July!)? If you don’t have a meetup group near you, this is a great way to stay connected with the community online!
Throughout July: Go Girls discuss the book in person in their meetup groups. See below for when your group may be meeting.
End of July: Kira Salak answers some of the questions from our #gogirlreads chat in an exclusive interview with Go Girl Travel Network!
