It is Women’s History Month.
I have done nothing to celebrate it.
I am not reading any histories of suffragists or the new biography of Margaret Fuller, though those are important.
Instead I am thinking about Carole King, one of the best, most successful, and influential American singer-songwriters.
King’s memoir, A Natural Woman, is on my TBR.
Here is a link to her website.
And here is a video of Carole King singing, ” (You Make Me Feel like) a Natural Woman.”
2. Below is a photo of The National Woman Suffrage Parade, 1913, “the first civil rights parade to use the nation’s capital as a backdrop. “Read about it at: http://womenshistorymonth.gov/
3. Do you ever feel like going to manybooks.net just to see what books are featured?
Today I found The Profiteers by Edward Phillips Oppenheim, who was a popular writer of genre fiction and thrillers.
Here’s an excerpt:
a tall, pale, beautifully gowned woman who had detached herself from a group close at hand turned towards them.
“It is Lady Dredlinton,” Kendrick whispered in his ear.
“Then I will only say,” Wingate concluded, “that Lord Dredlinton’s commercial record scarcely entitles him to a seat on the Board of any progressive company.”
Well, possibly I won’t read it, but how nice that it’s free if I want to.
4. I forgot to tell you yesterday to beware the Ides of March yesterday, so I hope instead you will enjoy this list of The 50 Best Historical Novels for a Survey of Ancient Roman History.
