About the Event

All She Wrote Books is thrilled to announce our first Sunday morning book club in-store, called Breakfast Club

Our book club selections feature diverse and thought-provoking literature, with a focus on LGBTQ+ and feminist literature. Each book has been carefully chosen to inspire meaningful discussions and offer unique perspectives on love, identity, and belonging.

For June's book club selection, we will be reading Big Swiss by Jen Beagin. Join us on Sunday, June 18th at 10:30am at the bookstore, for a lively discussion about a funny, offbeat story that asks questions about telling the truth, falling in love, and who we really are when no one else is looking—or so we think. We will also have donuts and coffee from Union Square Donuts!

Tickets are limited to due to capacity at the bookstore, and each ticket will include either a copy of the breakfast book club pick or a $5 All She Wrote Books gift card.

There are many ways to obtain a copy of the book (aside from your public library) — you can purchase it through,, or to help support our work.

Our event has a limited capacity and we want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to attend. By letting us know that you can no longer attend, we can open up your spot to someone on our waitlist who is eager to participate.


In Big Swiss, Greta lives with her friend Sabine in an ancient Dutch farmhouse in Hudson, New York. The house is unrenovated, uninsulated, and full of bees. Greta spends her days transcribing therapy sessions for a sex coach who calls himself Om. She becomes infatuated with his newest client, a repressed married woman she affectionately refers to as Big Swiss.

One day, Greta recognizes Big Swiss’s voice in town and they quickly become enmeshed. While Big Swiss is unaware Greta has eavesdropped on her most intimate exchanges, Greta has never been more herself with anyone. Her attraction to Big Swiss overrides her guilt, and she’ll do anything to sustain the relationship…

“A fantastic, weird-as-hell, super funny novel” (Bustle), Big Swiss is both a love story and a deft examination of infidelity, mental health, sexual stereotypes, and more—from an amazingly talented, singular voice in contemporary fiction.
