We are excited about upcoming WNBA events! We have events for members only and some that are open to non-members as well.
The WNBA provides regular programming at the national level and through our chapters. During the coronavirus pandemic, all events are virtual.
Details for WNBA National events, such as Zoom links and passwords, are sent out through our Bookwoman Event emails and are posted in our Facebook groups (Bookwoman Book Club and WNBA Talks Books) or on our WNBA Facebook page.
Login information for Chapter events will be sent out by the chapters.
