Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. From colonial times, women have been at the forefront of significant developments in the literary community and the book world. Despite this important history, no single publication has provided an overview of women's roles in writing, publishing, bookselling, and librarianship. With WOMEN IN THE LITERARY LANDSCAPE, in honor of its Centennial, the WNBA breaks new ground with a narrative connecting women's contributions in these fields with the relevant social history.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Women, literary pursuits, and the book world: milestones and trends -- Bookselling then and now -- From the archives -- Supporting literature and literacy -- WNBA chapter histories.
