International Women’s Day is tomorrow, March 8th.  The theme for 2022 (and beyond) is gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.  There are, of course, many different social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women to celebrate.  However, focusing from a literary perspective and female authors, this piece from the Booktrib website says well:

“If we don’t take advantage of learning through others, we miss out on the greater understanding of different people and cultures. By tapping in to the work of these great authors, we benefit from different perspectives and grow from the immersive experience of reading. Celebrate the women who wrote the stories and the women characters who are written; they all have something important to say.”

Don’t forget to spring forward!  The clocks change for daylight savings time at 2:00 am, Sunday March 13th.  What does this mean for us?  An extra hour of natural light to read by in the evening!  Regardless of whether you are a summer or winter person, we all are looking forward to some sun and some green!  Side note: do you think those are actually books or is it just the coolest painted window box ever?
