Editor’s Note: This year, our Half Price Books calendar once again features books, movies and music grouped together in weird, unexpected ways. You might even call them Totally Random Lists, which is what we did because, well, we had to put something on the front cover. We like the lists so much, we’ll be sharing them on this blog throughout the year.
We’re taking a page from herstory to discover the plucky girls and uncommon ladies at the center of our favorite stories and music. Heartfelt or heroic, each featured female embodies the complex nature of women in a way that’s both memorable and inspirational.
Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
Salvage the Bones, Jesmyn Ward
Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
The Red Tent, Anita Diamant
Olive Kitteridge, Elizabeth Strout
Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston
