Hi, I’m Leigh, founder and organizer of SheReaders Book Club. Women have undoubtedly made my life better. I’m a firm believer that we flourish when we’re surrounded by supportive female friends and we should always be adding new members to our tribe.

For decades, I’ve been hosting in-person and online events for women where I encourage attendee participation and really getting to know one another on a deeper level. Connections are made through shared experiences and thoughtful discussions. Those are the goals of every event I host, to bring women together and have a good time!

I’m a passionate linguist with a deep love for learning. I speak fluent Spanish, plus French, and some Hebrew. I lived for a year in Ibarra, Ecuador. Yes, I’ve eaten cuy (guinea pig) and drunk ayahuasca. Ask me about it!

Professionally, I am a South Florida Real Estate Broker at RealtyBoss® where I’ve spent over a decade helping customers, mainly women, reach their real estate goals.

I’m a natural bibliophile, traveler, corgi-lover, plant-based chef, and creative spirit. SheReaders Book Club is my biggest passion project. I can’t wait to meet you and have you join us in this wonderful group!

About shereaders

Women Reading Women

We believe that reading more books written by women is essential for attaining gender equality. Women authors are underrepresented in literature and historically it has been harder for women to become successful writers. Statistics show that women are reading more books than men, yet most of the books read are written by men. If we are to break down the bias, it has to start with changing our reading habits on an individual level.

An amazing group with a fantastic host who keeps meetings upbeat. Discussions are thoughtful and fun. I enjoy it every time!
As always, Leigh’s events do not disappoint! She has a way of raising everybody up and I love attending her discussions.
Engaging conversations. Thought-stimulating questions are posed and diverse perspectives encouraged.


When does SheReaders meet?
We typically have our monthly book discussions on the third Thursday of the month at 7pm EST. The discussions last for one hour and end promptly at 8pm. Time and dates for social events will vary based on the host’s availability.
Does it cost money to join?
No. It is free to become a SheReader and participate in events. Periodically throughout the year you will be asked if you want to make a financial contribution to the group but those donations are completely voluntary and up to your discretion. If you would like to contrbute, you can do so here.
Are you always going to meet online?
Yes. In order to include all of our members, in many parts of the world, our book discussions will forever be virtual and hosted on Zoom. Some socials will be in person and members are encouraged to arrange get togethers with other local members if they want to.
Do I need to have read the book to attend a meeting?
