The WNBA membership is open to all women, and men, who work with and love books. Authors, editors, designers, publicists, agents, librarians, avid readers—connect in cities and across the nation to help shape the conversation around books and their role in our world. Chapters in eleven metro area cater directly to members with panel programs, networking events, and literacy outreach programs. Membership also confers national benefits, including connecting with other members and the public through our national directory.

If you live in a city with an established chapter, contact them (refer to our national website to Find a Chapter).


If you’re more than fifty miles from the nearest chapter city, you may choose a Network Membership and connect it with the chapter of your choice. Please visit a chapter’s website for Network Membership instructions.
