March is Women’s History Month and here at the Prairie State Library we’re celebrating with a display of wonderful books by and about women and their history. One book that really sums up what this month celebrates is A Day in the Life of the American Woman: How We See Ourselves by Sharon Wohlmuth. This book tells the story of women across the country on the same day, illustrated with lots of gorgeous photos. We see mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers; police officers and ex-cons; musicians, farmers, doctors, and women from all walks of life showing what it’s like to be a woman in America.
For a more historical perspective, check out any of the other books we have on display at the the Prairie State College Library.
