Nomination: Scribbling Women

Jocelyn, Marthe. Scribbling Women. 2011. 208p. Tundra Books, $19.95 (9780887769528). Gr. 6-89. [aw]

The author collects writings from 11 women across time and cultures.  Each story gives a glimpse into the lives of women, whether it’s court gossip from Imperial Japan, the groundbreaking journalism of Nellie Bly, or the journal of Ada Blackjack who was sent on a secret Arctic mission.  This collection shows that women’s writing is so much more than just “scribbling:” it helps keep history alive.
