Our Chapters

The Go On Girl! Book Club Chapters

My how we’ve grown! New York 1 was where it all began with 12 members who met once a month in each other’s home. It was very simple back then. Each person selected a book they wanted to read, and we read and discussed it. What was interesting back then is that every person had a certain genre of book they liked to read, and that laid the foundation for the genres we read today. That very first meeting was held at co-founder Tracy Mitchell Brown’s apartment in Brooklyn, New York and set the tone for how we all wanted to get together around books. Tracy prepared all these wonderful breads with a big fruit salad and served warm teas.  Today members meet just about anywhere that works for everyone -- in their homes, restaurants, and libraries or take their meetings on a field trip. For example when we read Barbara Chase-Riboud’s Sally Hemmings some chapters went to Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia for their book discussion.
