#AuthorSharesYrInitials #BookBinge Thank you to @Eggs and @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for today‘s prompt! I did an internet search which led me to this Suffragette poet whose work I‘m now super excited to read! If you can‘t see this image you should do a quick google image search for her name and check out the amazing ephemera that pops up!

Suet624 Love this. 10mo
SassyBookworm This is great! 10mo
IndoorDame @SassyBookworm @Suet624 there‘s a series called forgotten books classic reprints so you can actually buy and borrow some books like this from the library pretty easily. I grabbed a volume of hers from Libby yesterday. 10mo

I know #internationalwomansday has gone but I celebrate woman everyday 🥰 because I just love them. ❤️
My local library has a very small display of books dedicated I think to female authors and female characters, check it out.

KathyWheeler Weirdly, I‘ve only read one of those books, Red Clocks. I wanted to like that book more than I actually liked it. I‘ll have to check out the others, especially that Pat Barker one. 1y

102 years ago ...

I'm still bitter that the pandemic cheated us out of a real centennial celebration of Women's Right to vote, and everyone just shrugged and said "oh well."

I'm also bitter that this entire part of US history is basically a footnote in most history books and only briefly covered in most history classes. I barely knew anything about it.

Thank you for sending me in an awesome trip around the world, as the indomitable Nellie Bly, @StayCurious! Such a fun package. I love everything, but am especially stoked about the pocket watch and pen! Hoping to dig into the books and candy soon. Thank you and our hosts! @DinoMom @Chrissyreadit #staycationintimeswap #sits #staycationintime

StayCurious I hope you liked the package, it was fun to research and put together. I‘m not at home since it‘s a holiday here in Canada but will open mine first thing tomorrow! (edited) 2y

Reading this book in the midst of all the kerfuffle around the potential repeal of Roe was like a knife in the heart. And it‘s a book for tweens! And it was heartbreaking to realize that nothing has changed at all! The other book that I had a hard time choosing between was Stamped (For Kids) — a version of Ibram X. Kendi‘s book geared toward 4th graders so my kid will be ready for it soon.

Went and saw this new musical at the Public (starring Phillippa Soo of Hamilton fame) — it was based upon the tagged memoir, following the American suffrage movement. Well-written and clever, pulls at your heartstrings & makes you laugh (and cry). I need to find a copy of Doris‘ book now….
