Women(s) Lit (Recommended Reading)

Today is International Women’s Day – Please pardon my late-in-the-day post, as it’s almost evening, now, and that Google front page reminder has been staring me back in the face upon quite a few returns… Indeed–>

Rene Lynch of the Los Angeles Times asked (much earlier today): “How are you observing it, aside from perhaps noting the Google Doodle set up in its honor?” – “International Women’s Day is not nearly as well known in the United States as it is in other parts of the globe; elsewhere, it’s marked by rallies, banners and even a day off….”

While the Washington Post posted a feature on a new book, No Woman’s Land — On the Frontlines with Female Reporters  – “…essays written by 40 female reporters and photographers who cover civil unrest and have endured sexual harassment or attacks in more than a dozen countries…”

The Ferndale Public Library, meanwhile, we’re celebrating in the most immediate, and perhaps best-way we know – offering a display of two dozen (and more) titles – from books and documentary films – on some of history’s greatest women, from artists to activists and more.
