If you’re desperately busy, need something light to relieve the burdens of the day, and miss chatting with friends over a fun book, then we’re the group for you! 


Girls Night Out Book Club abides by the following:

  • We read only FUN, light hearted books if possible
  • We avoid tear jerkers if possible
  • We don’t take our book picks too seriously if possible
  • We have a variety of genres in the rotation if possible

Please join us via zoom on Tuesday, August 18th at 7pm for introductions and an upbeat discussion around our first book, Everything’s Trash, But It’s Okay by Phoebe Robinson.  Drinks and Snacks are strongly encouraged.

Please make sure to have read the book prior to the first meeting on August 18th.


Everything’s Trash, But It’s Okay

Wouldn't it be great if life came with instructions? Of course, but like access to Michael B. Jordan's house, none of us are getting any. Thankfully, Phoebe Robinson is ready to share everything she has experienced to prove that if you can laugh at her topsy-turvy life, you can laugh at your own.

Written in her trademark unfiltered and witty style, Robinson's latest collection is a call to arms. Outfitted with on-point pop culture references, these essays tackle a wide range of topics: giving feminism a tough-love talk on intersectionality, telling society's beauty standards to kick rocks, and calling foul on our culture's obsession with work. Robinson also gets personal, exploring money problems she's hidden from her parents, how dating is mainly a warmed-over bowl of hot mess, and definitely most important, meeting Bono not once, but twice. She's struggled with being a woman with a political mind and a woman with an ever-changing jeans size. She knows about trash because she sees it every day--and because she's seen roughly one hundred thousand hours of reality TV and zero hours of Schindler's List.

New York Times bestselling author and star of 2 Dope Queens Phoebe Robinson is back with a new, hilarious, and timely essay collection on gender, race, dating, and the dumpster fire that is our world.
