A boldly illustrated celebration of literary history’s most revolutionary, talented women writers.
Women have written some of our most extraordinary literary works while living in societies and cultures that tried to silence them. These women dared to put pen to paper to express the multifaceted female experience. InBookish Broads, Lauren Marino celebrates fierce, trailblazing female writers, reworking the literary canon that has long failed to recognise the immense contributions of women. Featuring more than 50 brilliant bookish broads, Marino cleverly illuminates the lives of the greats as well as the literary talents history has wrongfully overlooked. Each intimate portrait delves into one woman’s works and is accompanied by vibrant illustrations depicting each literary legend in her element and time.
Written by Lauren Marino, the author of What Would Dolly Do? and Jackie and Cassini. The founding editor of Gotham Books, she has published multiple bestsellers and award-winning books.
Illustrated by Alexandra Kilburn, a painter, muralist, illustrator, and stylist who lives and works in New Orleans.
