Thanks for all the entries for the new Olive Edition of Sylvia Plath’s classic The Bell Jar! I’ve added a few dozen books to my wishlist with all the great suggestions for books to consider for the Women Unbound reading challenge.
Random.org selected the one lucky winner, who is:
#12 – Lahni – Have you considered Twilight? Ha ha, just kidding.
A really good one is The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill (it’s called something else in the US though – can’t remember what). The protagonist is a woman who when she was about 11 was taken from her village in Africa and sold into slavery. I loved the book and it’s about a strong woman. I think it would definitely fit the challenge. [note from Dawn: This is published as Someone Knows My Name in the US]
Congratulations, Lahni! Please send me your US/Canada mailing address and I’ll forward it to Harper Perennial.
