Experiencing Interruptions?

The Drunk Lonely Wives Book Club

Friendship, feminism, cocktails, sex, secrets, and comedy collide in this female-driven digital series about a 1963 ladies-only book club!

When four neighbors found a ladies-only book club in 1963, friendships are formed and broken, secrets are revealed, social conventions are challenged, and juicy discussions are had — few of which have anything to do with the monthly book!

…it’s Mad Men meets Desperate Housewives!
