Today is International Women’s Day! In a White House press release, President Obama said “empowering women isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s the smart thing to do.”
One way to empower women is to publish their books! Check out a few of UNP’s talented women and their books:
Cathleen Miller’s Champion of Choice celebrates the life of women’s advocate Nafis Sadik. Her book was recently reviewed in the New York Journal of Books and Dad of Divas. Nafis Sadik was also interviewed on Pathfinder’s blog.
Body Geographic by Barrie Jean Borich chronicles one woman's relationship with herself, her sexuality, and the midwestern people and places she has called home. Borich’s book was reviewed in Booklist and you can listen to Borich discuss her book on New Books in Literature.
Booklist also reviewed Ladette Randolph’s new book, Haven’s Wake, the story of a Mennonite Nebraska family dealing with death, a tragic family secret and the emotions left behind.
We Wanted to Be Writers reviewed The Days Are Gods by Liz Stephens which is a memoir of the West from the point of view of a newcomer, an L.A. transplant, who finds home in a northern Utah town.
