The 1891 classic short story is our new #litereads selection. A New England Nun by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman is an interesting way to acknowledge the last week of #womenshistorymonth
I really really loved this gorgeous collection of bios of artists!! I can't believe I hadn't heard of most of them! It's sad 😥
My personal favorite was probably Rosa Bonhuer.
Parts of this book read almost like a memoir, but I didn't mind it
I highly recommend 😊
If you have had a baby, and the doctor gave you an Apgar score to make sure your precious bundle was healthy, you can thank a brilliant woman for that. I am already so enjoying this book about little known women in science, like Virginia Apgar!
This was a little textbooky for my tastes. But still an interesting read. So much is unknown about Cleopatra's life, so there was alot of assumptions made. However, the author painted a rich picture of the culture, and the social, political climate in which Cleopatra ruled. Also many important ideas about how history remembers women in power. Cleopatra is most known for her love life, and not the lasting contributions she made to the world
Starting my #justabookswap book of a strong woman. Perfect for #womenshistorymonth and I found this sweet note inside from @Johanna414 💕 It looks like you did send it with a note but I was too silly to open the pages far enough to find it 😊 Thanks again for a great pick!
Buckle up, because this book is amazing! TO TURN THE WHOLE WORLD OVER: BLACK WOMEN AND INTERNATIONALISM is edited by Keisha N. Blain and Tiffany Gill and includes an amazing lineup of contributors exploring various dimensions of Black women‘s international work and activism.
