We Write, We Rise

Central to America’s rich literary canon are the female authors who have produced innumerable novels, short stories, and memoirs throughout the nation’s first 240 years. The works of Toni Morrison, Joan Didion, Ursula K Le Guin, Maya Angelou, Edith Wharton, Louisa May Alcott, and Kate Chopin illuminate a range of experiences of American female identity. These authors are united in a colorful book set which pays tribute to all women who have put pen to paper.

Across the spines is a modern interpretation of the iconic “Rosie the Riveter” poster painted by Denver-based artist Kimothy Joy.
