Editorial Reviews

Review

“I read a little from this book each day as there is so much information packed in here. I had no idea that the first recorded writer in human history was a woman! I am learning so much from this and it is written in a delightfully entertaining way. I am inspired!” ―Varla Ventura, author of Sheroes

“Enter into this fascinating world of women who are desperately in love with books. They are a diverse group of personalities who were at times ignored, banned and reviled by the public for their use of the written word. Becca Anderson offers some intriguing and entertaining profiles of women in the literary scene. They are listed in cool categories which include prolific pens, those whose books were banned, women who wrote from a different spiritual point of view and other interesting facts about women in the field of literature. Did you know that women were responsible for writing the Bible under the "guidance" of Jerome? Are you aware of the prolific amount of prose penned by Barbara Cartland, Margaret Mead and Edith Wharton? These are just a few tidbits of information that will encourage you to read more and, hopefully, be inspired to pick up the pen yourself!” ―Autumn Stephens, author of Wild Words from Wild Women

“This book is a testament to the relationship and contributions of women writers, lest we forget their impact and inspiration. Becca paints portraits of women writers with her energetic and enigmatic words in an accessible and engaging manner. Please join me on this amazing journey through women’s history―I know you will be as inspired by it as I have been.” ―Ntozake Shange, author of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf

"Dig deep in this rich history of women writers. Essential." ―Lawrence Ferlinghetti, cofounder of City Lights

“So go on, do some guilt-free indulging in the pages of Becca Anderson’s basket of literary bonbons. She has gathered a wealth of delectable stories in which to immerse ourselves, a bite at a time. Let’s hear it for bibliophiles and book ladies–our richest yet most non-fattening vice.” ―Vicki León, author of the Uppity Women series

“An absolute 'must read' for anyone thinking that centuries of literature being almost exclusively dominated by men, The Book of Awesome Women Writers: Medieval Mystics, Pioneering Poets, Fierce Feminists and First Ladies of Literature should be a part of every personal, community, college, and university library Literary Studies and Feminist History collections.” ―Library Bookwatch
