Please see the links below for some of the press around Girls Reading or the ‘Avalanche’ as one twitter friend commented.

“In an age of technological genius, reading the classics of English literature can be a bore. But, a new performance movement, Girls Reading, may be what it takes to extend our attention spans”. 

Women bare their literary aspirations

The Girls had a fabulous evening and we can’t wait to do it again. The next event will be on the 20th of April, ‘Girls Reading – A Very Royal Reading’ to celebrate the impending nuptials of Katie and Wills!

Girls Reading started in Chicago in 2009, and has sold out across the North America. Sophia St. Villier proudly brings you the European Premier of Girls Reading, London. What better way to celebrate this joyous, occasion than to read literature about our fine city of London?

Entertainment Weekly said, “Great literature stripped bare!”
The Globe and Mail (July 21, 2010) said “Burlesque turns a page – the girls pick up a book.”
You may come for the

nudity but you will stay to hang on every word!

Rubyyy Jones:  Performer, writer, muse and owner of the most piercing blues eyes this side of the Thames.

meet the london girls:

I am very proud to introduce you to the girls who will be reading at the inaugural Girls Reading event in London on the 23rd of March.

First of all, let me introduce myself! I’m Sophia St. Villier, or just St. Villier as I’m often called backstage. I’m originally from New Zealand and I’m a bonafied Londonophile. I’m a burlesque performer and the ringleader of this bunch of girls who like to read and live in London.
