A celebration of perhaps the most revered and radical women writers of history. Beginning with the first recorded writer of either gender, Enheduanna of Sumeria, and ending with acclaimed authors of today, including Toni Morrison and J.K. Rowling, this is a must-read for those who must read. Brenda Knight brings more than one hundred female authors to life for today’s readers. She makes their tumultuous and admirable paths to literary expression easily accessible in chapters such as Literary First Ladies; Ink in Their Veins; Banned, Blacklisted, and Arrested; and Women Whose Books Are Loved Too Much. From religious transcribers and political dissidents to erotic playwrights and romantic poets, no subject or literary form is left untouched. In honor of those women whose pens pioneered, persevered, and proved that the female voice is brilliant, we invite you to listen. H09
