Does it seem like a defiant, rebellious act for a woman to write? It might seem crazy to think that there was a time when women couldn’t express themselves with a pen and paper without getting in trouble. For the young girls growing up today, thinking freely and expressing their thoughts shouldn’t be outside the norm, but some of the ladies featured in The Book of Awesome Women Writers by Becca Anderson had much different circumstances to contend with.
This book is for anyone who loves reading, loves books, loves writing. It’s divided into chapters like a fiction book would be, and it has a fun cover, like you would expect for a fiction book. The material makes it more like a reference book, because there’s so much information, except it isn’t dry like a reference source can be. It’s the closest thing to an encyclopedia that I’ve touched in a long time. This book was fun, interesting, and one that has earned a place on my bookshelf.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
