Someone challenged Virginia Woolf: If women were as capable of producing great literature as well as men, then where in the history of western literature were the great women writers? Why didn’t Shakespeare’s sister produce anything as great as her brother, William? The answer Woolf gives in her 1929 book, A Room of One's Own, is brilliant.
To celebrate Women’s History Month, This House of Books will host a discussion group featuring Woolf’s A Room of One's Own. The group will meet over the span of three successive Mondays: March 9, 16, and 23, beginning each evening at 5:30 and concluding at 7:00.
