March is Women’s National History Month, and there’s no better time than now to commemorate the literary work and accomplishments of published female authors. The Women’s National Book Association is celebrating its centennial this year, and this is a signature program of the celebration.
Each day, a book will be sent to the president. Each book is written influential woman with powerful and timely themes. The list is also being sent to members of Congress and government officials. The first book of the month is Catherine Drinker Bowen‘s Miracle at Philadelphia: The Story of the Constitutional Convention.
This initiative aims to enlighten and inspire mutual feelings of “equality, diversity, and justice,” as explained in a letter to the President by Pace MS in Publishing Professor and WNBA National President Jane Kinney Denning.
