I didn't know Harriet Hosmer. This was interesting. I'm looking forward to more on women on your blog this month!


Like Melissa I didn't know about Hosmer, but now I want to! Its fascinating to me the unique struggle of a biographer to not only share the facts but to share it in a compelling manner. Thanks for sharing the process behind the book as well!


Denver Book Club Girl readers may be interested to know I will speaking about the biography at the LoDo Tattered Cover on March 22 at 7:30 PM.


Thank you Jennifer and Kate, I had never heard of Harriet but I look forward to getting to know her better.

>an extensive network of supporters with a vested interest in her success worked tirelessly to promote her

What we all need! Lovely piece, Kate - and thanks, Jennifer, for giving Women's History Montb exposure.

I'm one of a group of authors doing similar pieces on AOL news: Rebecca Wells did a lovely piece there on Flannery O'Conner, and I did one yesterday on Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

So nice to have these venues to learn about the women who paved the way for us.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
