A Friend of the Family

Happy #wcw! We're back for another thrilling roundup of our favorite literary heroines and trailblazers. These women are not sidekicks or footnotes in men's stories; they make their own destinies by being fearless and flawed and brave. This group has been inspiring us for a long time, and we hope to find more women in books to continue to empower us!
Lauren Grodstein, author of A FRIEND OF THE FAMILY, describes the thrilling experience of receiving her first "grown-up book" for Hannukah one year, knowing --- even at the age of ten --- that it was one of the best presents she could possibly receive.
