Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff

You’ve not really known the full story of Cleopatra until you’ve read Stacy Schiff’s history!

Figuring by Maria Popova

Part philosophy, part history, this book deliberately chooses to not leave out female scientists and artists and takes a unique approach in telling a history of discovery, exploration, and creativity.

Hunger by Roxane Gay

A compelling memoir about a woman and her body (and the story of so many women and their bodies).

The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka

This unconventional, beautiful novel tells the story of a group of Japanese women who come to America as  part of arranged marriages.

Circe by Madeline Miller

Enjoy this much fuller retelling of the myth of Circe as she struggles to figure out where she fits within her family, strives to hone her powers and oversee her own island.
