Women's History Month

March already.
I spent the last week(s) getting my taxes ready for the accountant, and now that's done. (whew)

All of a sudden, It's March.
And March is Women's History Month.

During March, click on over to the Kidlit Celebrates blog, where they are Celebrating Women's History month with essays from well known women about the 2013 National Women's History Project theme of Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Now in its third consecutive year, the blog was founded by two librarians and brings together distinguished authors and illustrators of books related to women's history with librarians and bloggers from across North America. 

Each day features a new essay, commentary or review by some of the most noted writers in the field of literature for young people. Contributors for 2013 include Jane Yolen, Sy Montgomery, Roger Sutton, Tanya Anderson, Michelle Markel and Tanya Lee Stone, among others; a complete line-up of contributors can be found on the site.

Sound great.  My hats off to the organizers!
