Saturday Spotlight: The Little Book of Feminist Saints by Julia Pierpont

Introducing Saturday Nite Reader’s weekly meme: Saturday Spotlight! Each Saturday I will spotlight a book I have read or am currently reading; and, of course what I think is special about it. I invite you to participate as well! Just link back to my weekly post and don’t forget to add your spotlight link in the comment section for all to see. Happy Sharing! XO, Nikki

The Little Book of Feminist Saints by Julia Pierpont and beautifully illustrated by Manjit Thapp

Published: March 6, 2018 by Random House
Category: Nonfiction, History, Feminism, Biography
A Stylist Must-read Book of 2018

The collection highlights 100 women throughout history, and around the world, who have been inspirations, trailblazers, and fighters for women. 

Goodreads Synopsis:
In this luminous volume, New York Times bestselling writer Julia Pierpont and artist Manjit Thapp match short, vibrant, and surprising biographies with stunning full-color portraits of secular female “saints” champions of strength and progress. These women broke ground, broke ceilings, and broke molds. Open to any page and find daily inspiration and lasting delight.

img_2335.jpgSome of the 100 women showcased include authors Anne Frank, Maya Angelou, The Bronte Sisters, Eleanor Roosevelt, Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson and Jane Austen.

img_2334.jpgI have committed to reading one profile each day and on the last day I will write a post on my own feminist saint (the 100th chapter in the book is just that).

If you have this book and/or would like to participate in my 100 day challenge that would be lovely. Start anytime, there is no set day. Happy Reading!

  1. This one sounds interesting. I love that, on the last day, you get to add your own. It really personalizes it for you 🙂 And I absolutely love your spotlight. I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to share this week 🙂
