Book Women Who Wrote

Women Who Wrote Book Summary :

Meet the women who wrote. They wrote against all odds. Some wrote defiantly; some wrote desperately. Some wrote while trapped within the confines of status and wealth. Some wrote hand-to-mouth in abject poverty. Some wrote trapped in a room of their father’s house, and some went in search of a room of their own. They had lovers and families. They were sometimes lonely. Many wrote anonymously or under a pseudonym for a world not yet ready for their genius and talent. We know many of their names—Austen and Alcott, Brontë and Browning, Wheatley and Woolf—though some may be less familiar. They are here, waiting to introduce themselves. They marched through the world one by one or in small sisterhoods, speaking to each other and to us over distances of place and time. Pushing back against the boundaries meant to keep us in our place, they carved enough space for themselves to write. They made space for us to follow. Here they are gathered together, an army of women who wrote and an arsenal of words to inspire us. They walk with us as we forge our own paths forward. These women wrote to change the world.

The Heart of a Woman Book Summary :

Maya Angelou has fascinated, moved, and inspired countless readers with the first three volumes of her autobiography, one of the most remarkable personal narratives of our age. Now, in her fourth volume, The Heart of a Woman, her turbulent life breaks wide open with joy as the singer-dancer enters the razzle-dazzle of fabulous New York City. There, at the Harlem Writers Guild, her love for writing blazes anew. Her compassion and commitment lead her to respond to the fiery times by becoming the northern coordinator of Martin Luther King's history-making quest. A tempestuous, earthy woman, she promises her heart to one man only to have it stolen, virtually on her weding day, by a passionate African freedom fighter. Filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous characters, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X, The Heart of a Woman sings with Maya Angelou's eloquent prose -- her fondest dreams, deepest disappointments, and her dramatically tender relationship with her rebellious teenage son. Vulnerable, humorous, tough, Maya speaks with an intimate awareness of the heart within all of us.

Uncoded Woman Book Summary :

"Coding and decoding are threads running through Anne-Marie Oomen's poems, which together tell the story of a woman named Bead and her search for safe harbor. The maritime International Code of Signals--a directory of ship's pennants and the messages they convey--becomes a symbolic guide to Bead's journey. Signposts along the way include "LN1: You Should Proceed with Caution, ""D: Keep Clear of Me: I Am Maneuvering with Difficulty," and"YZ: The Words Which Follow Are in Plain Language." The beautiful terrain near Lake Michigan forms a powerful backdrop to Bead's life with Barn, her Native American boyfriend, whose struggles are often in stark contrast to the wealthy resort community around them. Oomen captures the voices of women living on the edge of survival. From exhilaration to degradation, from betrayal to self-reliance, these poems defy harshness to offer the magnificent force of life."--Publisher's website.
