ESO is an honorary educational society that is federation-supported and open to all GFWC club members. The GFWC Pennsylvania Kappa Chapter of ESO began in 1950. To become a member, complete the simple application and simply read!!  Certificates are awarded for completed levels at the GFWC Pennsylvania Convention annually.  ESO is one of the free benefits of belonging to a GFWC federated club.

During the last administration GFWC Pennsylvania became sisters with GFWC of Holden Beach, a club
of 45 members located in North Carolina. Each month, a newsletter is created and sent to each ESO
member via email by this chairman (who is also the chairman for our sister club) sharing information on
new books, reading games, information on authors, notes from members on books they have read, and
anything book related.

Involve your club members. Who can read the most books during the year? Recognize her at a club
meeting. Highlight a book read by a member at each meeting or include suggested books in your club
newsletter. Have a trade books table at club meetings– members can bring some or take some.
Send in your application. Follow that with a list of books you have read in 2022 and the chairman will
help you get started. It’s easy. It’s fun. It’s FREE!!
