Bookish Broads: Women Who Wrote Themselves into History

Bookish Broads: Women Who Wrote Themselves into History

by Lauren Marino Author and Alexandra Kilburn Illustrator

Celebrate fierce, trailblazing female writers who challenged the literary canon that has long failed to recognize the immense contributions of women. Women have written some of our most extraordinary literary works while living in societies and cultures that tried to silence them. Featuring more than 50 brilliant bookish broads, Marino cleverly illuminates the lives of the greats as well as the literary talents history has wrongfully overlooked. These women dared to put pen to paper to express the multifaceted female experience and each well-deserved, intimate portrait delves into one woman’s works accompanied by vibrant illustrations depicting each literary legend in her element and time.
