We’re a week into Women’s History Month and people all over the internet are posting lists of good books about women’s history.* I am happily adding names to my To-Be-Read list, which is already so long that I may never work my way through it. But in the excitement of learning about new (or at least new-ish) books, it’s easy to forget (slightly) older books of women’s history.
Here are links to a dozen reviews from earlier posts, just in case your list isn’t long enough already:
Marie von Clausewitz: The Woman Behind the Making of On War (Okay, this isn’t technically a review. It’s an interview with the author. My blog; my rules.)
The General’s Niece: The Little-Known De Gaulle Who Fought to Free Occupied France (FYI. You’re going to be hearing more from Paige Bowers later this month
That should keep you busy for a while.**
*I was pleased to be included in this list: 8 Unforgettable True Stories of Women Who Made Their Mark on History
**If you’re looking for more suggestions, I highly recommend Greer McAllister’s blog series #read99women, in which 99 women authors recommend books by and about women. (Full disclosure: I made my recommendation on February 27.)
A FEW PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
If you are reading this in real time: we spring forward into Daylight Savings Time on Sunday. Don’t forget to change your clocks. (I also celebrate this event by cursing whoever decided this was a good idea. It doesn’t actually save daylight. It just steals it from the morning people and gives it to the night people. Rant over. Until next year.)
I will be speaking about Women Warriors in the Twin Cities on March 11. Here are links to the details:
