little lit book series: women's history month

We’ve been looking forward to March for some time now.  It’s Women's History Month and we’re sharing books about extraordinary women today on #littlelitbookseries.

"Which of all my important nothings shall I tell you first?"  Jane Austen needs no introduction.  She "had a gift for social observation and a sharp eye for human folly."  Her significant contributions shaped the literary landscape of her time—and beyond—and she paved the way for other women writers.  This absolutely lovely illustrated biography about her gives us details about her life and the world she lived in.

Be sure to seek out the other books in this series about other women with exceptional talents in their fields: Virginia Woolf, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.  Library of Luminaries: Jane Austen: An Illustrated Biography was written by Zena Alkayat, illustrated by Nina Cosford and published by Chronicle Books.

Stop by @littlelitbookseries for more books about extraordinary women throughout the month and see what everyone else is sharing today on Instagram by searching the hashtag #littlelitbookseries.
