ESO (Epsilon Sigma Omicron) an Honorary Reading Society is a project of the FFWC.  It was founded in Indiana in 1928, and by 1930 was incorporated as a national sorority.  Sponsored by GFWC, this honorary society’s motto is “Enlighten Your Own Pathway” and offers all club members a chance to further their personal growth by planned reading.  State universities, libraries, and colleges officially recognize the program and act as administrative agencies.
