Are you ready for the challenge?

It’s 1999.

I’m sitting in high school English class.

I’m wearing Doc Martens with bootcut jeans.

And I’m struggling to get comfortable in my wooden desk as I read The Grapes of Wrath.

Good or bad, you have most likely had some experience with classic literature.

While historically men have dominated classic literature, some of the very best classic books are written by women.

Are you ready to step back in time and listen to the voices of women who came before us?

For September, I challenge you to read a classic book written by a woman.

The best part:

✔️You get to pick which book you read!

✔️You don’t have to read at a wooden desk.

✔️You probably won’t be wearing Doc Martens (although they have made a comeback).

Want some ideas?

🕮 Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

🕮 Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

🕮 To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

🕮 Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (gothic mystery)

🕮 A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

🕮 The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

Women have been writing great books for centuries. It’s time to read one!

Do you need an incentive to get started?

Respond to this email with your classic novel of choice for September and your name will be entered for a giveaway!

I would love to hear what you are going to read and your experience with classic literature!
