Notable American Women Writers Reviews

"Coverage begins with Anne Bradstreet, a poet from colonial times to Marie Lu, a YA author born in 1984. "America" also includes Canada and some Central and South American writers. The typical focus on literary authors is expanded to include those who write children’s and YA works, graphic novels, political and social commentary, screenwriters, and more... Each of the signed biographical essays is 3–5 pages, with a focus on the aspects of the author’s life that led to their becoming a writer. A selected list of their works is given as well as an extensive bibliography for further research. Additional material includes a chronology by birthdate, groupings by region, theme, and awards. This is a good resource for high school, academic, and public libraries, especially those needing to update their literary reference collections."
