Just in time for the movie A Wrinkle in Time, there's a new biography of Madeleine L'Engle written by her granddaughters: Becoming Madeleine. You'll get an up close and personal look at the author through photographs and excerpts from her diaries. Katherine Johnson finally got some well-deserved and long-overdue recognition through Hidden Figures (the movie and the book) and there have been several recent books published for youth as well. One I recently enjoyed is in the fun and informative You Should Meet reader series: Katherine Johnson by Thea Feldman. For anyone who loves art and/or science, The Girl Who Drew Butterflies by Joyce Sidman is the perfect match as it is about a woman who loved, studied and practiced both! So get reading before the month is over (but feel free to enjoy these books any time of the year)!
Although March is coming to an end, it's not too late to celebrate Women's History Month! In fact, in just a short period of time, you can read about women from all over the world in some great, new books for youth.
