Women of...Wednesday

The Bay State women are here!

The Write Sisters are pleased to announce the publication of their second cooperative book: Women of the Bay State: 25 Massachusetts Women You Should Know.
It's also the second book in the America's Notable Women series.

Once again the sisters have put together a great collection of profiles of some incredible women. Kathleen W. Deady is the lead author in this title.

Women of the Bay State includes stories of women in the arts and sciences; activists and actresses; athletes and martyrs. It was difficult to decide who to include in this book. The Commonwealth has many talented women in every field. We could have done a book on 25 women writers alone.

We invite you to meet some fascinating ladies:

Anne Dudley Bradstreet, America’s first poet…

….Maria Mitchell, America’s first woman astronomer

Edith Nourse Rogers, longest serving woman in the House of Representatives.

Find out what Bette Davis is famous for besides acting. Learn how the hot lunch program got started in public schools. Discover Massachusetts’ connection to the Harlem Renaissance.

The stories are short but you might just find a topic you’d like to learn more about. The book helps you locate other sources, too. Women of the Bay State is available through the publisher’s web site: and will soon be available on Pick up a copy and enjoy!
