At Lulu we’re big fans of International Women’s Day. Celebrate by supporting remarkable, independent, female authors who change the world with their words. Here are a few reading recommendations for the occasion.
“When a mastectomy, radiation and chemotherapy couldn’t stop Meg Wolff’s breast cancer in 1999, doctors told her to ‘prepare her soul.’ Instead, she took a leap of faith…in herself, by giving an unconventional approach – a diet based on whole grains, vegetables and beans – a try.” –Becoming Whole
“Take a woman fresh out of college, plop her down in Silicon Valley, saddle her with a mortgage, let her ride the tech boom, give her three babies in four years, slap her with the tech bust, watch vicariously as her marriage disintegrates, end her career, and hand her a computer. What do you get?” –Mommy Confidential
Lulu is truly international. If you haven’t yet, we highly recommend checking out some of our titles in other languages.
