Did you know the first writer on record in human history was a woman? Enheduanna was writing poetry in Sumeria over 4000 years ago. Have you read the work of the first black woman published in North America? Phyllis Wheatley's religious and philosophical works brought her fame on both sides of the pond. From religious mystics and political dissidents to erotic playwrights and romantic poets, no subject or literary form is left untouched. In honor of those women whose pens pioneered, persevered, and proved that the female voice is brilliant, The Book of Awesome Women Writers is an invitation to celebrate the unforgettable impact these women have made upon our culture.
