Great American Women Writers


Some of America’s most influential literary figures have been women who, in bravely documenting their perspectives, broadened the minds of readers and paved the way for writers of all backgrounds to tell their stories. We celebrate these women with this 8-volume set of books published by Library of America, featuring novels and short stories by some of our favorite American authors. In addition to being masterpieces, these works represent the power and importance of the female voice. Our custom jackets for the collection feature a classically beautiful illustration by the artist Charles Dana Gibson, best known for his depictions of American women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
