March 2018: Books by Women Writers for Women's History Month

Welcome back to our monthly recommendations! March is Women's History Month, so we invite you to support some of our favorite women authors, as well as your favorite woman-owned local business. These ladies have written amazing books, and there's something here for every age and genre. Stop by the store to see the full display with these and more of our picks.

 

For our youngest readers, we recommend Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Paris Rosenthal's Dear Girl,. This sweet picture book was written by a mother-daughter duo and is addressed to all girls, and to your girl specifically.

 

In middle grade, one of our favorites is Holly Goldberg Sloan's Short. From the author of the much-loved Counting by 7s, this one addresses self-love with humor and wit.

 

For graphic novel lovers, we suggest Victoria Jamieson's Roller Girl. The protagonist in this graphic novel comes to learn over a summer that unconventional interests are sometimes the best kind.

 

In the young adult section, we love Nina LaCour's We Are Okay. This is a beautiful story of grief, friendship, and love with two girls at the center of it all, and it recently won the Printz Award for outstanding young adult fiction. (Congratulations again to our dear friend Nina!)

 

From adult fiction, we recommend Jodi Picoult's Small Great Things. Complicated women grapple with complicated moral questions in this book from a master of writing women.

 

In adult nonfiction, we suggest Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele's When They Call You a Terrorist. You know Black Lives Matter, but did you know that the movement was started by three queer black women? This memoir should be mandatory reading.
