Journaling Women’s History Month

In celebration of the last day of Women’s History Month which has been celebrated since 1987. I would like to mention some of my favorite books by women which are worth reading:

Isabel Allende – My Invented Country

Maya Angelou – I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

Kate Chopin – The Awakening

Annie Dillard – An American Childhood

Lucy Grealy – Autobiography of a Face

Natalie Goldberg – Writing Down the Bones

Vivian Gornick – Fierce Attachments

Kathryn Harrison – The Kiss

Carloyn Heilbrun – The Last Gift of Time

Eva Hoffman – Lost in Translation

Kay Redfield Jamison – An Unquiet Mind

Mary Karr – The Liar’s Club, Cherry

Jennifer Lauck  – Blackbird

Reeve Lindbergh – Gift From the Sea, No More Words

Anais Nin –  The Journals of Anais Nin

Tillie Olsen – Silences

Francine Prose – Reading Like a Writer

Tristine Rainer –  The New Diary

Virginia Woolf – Moments of Being, A Room of One’s Own

Jeannette Walls – The Glass Castle

Winterson, Jeanette – Art Objects

Most of these are nonfiction writers because I mainly read nonfiction and surely there are many many more in this category, but this is a  good start!

Happy Reading!

Quote of the Week

"A writer uses a journal to try out the new step in front of the mirror."

~Mary Gordon

About Me

I am a memoirist, essayist, poet and teacher whose passion is keeping a notebook. My notebook is my muse and my alter ego. It contains personal snippets of my life and observations from the world around me. Diarist Anaïs Nin has been a great source of inspiration for me. My hobbies include writing, writing and more writing, but when I have extra time, I enjoy reading, walking, hiking, yoga, working out, cooking and hanging out with my family and Maltese Poodle, Spunky. In order not to become ensconced by the glare of my computer screen, I also teach in the UCLA Extension Writers' Program and in various conferences and festivals around the country. My pleasure comes from sharing my joy of journaling with professional writers and anyone interested in writing.
