Welcome to Women’s History Month 2015, which has the theme “Weaving the stories of women’s lives”. This is pretty cool, as it fits perfectly with our Cranky Ladies of History anthology project! After 18 months of work, including our successful crowdfunding campaign in March last year, the anthology will be officially released into the world at 3pm on International Women’s Day (March 8) at The Front Gallery and Cafe in Lyneham, Canberra, with special guest Karen Middleton officiating! (You can find out more at the Facebook event page)
To celebrate, many of our wonderful authors have supplied blog posts related to their Cranky Lady, and we are delighted to share them here during the month of March. While most of these posts can be safely read in isolation of the story in the book they relate to, we’ve made sure to mark those posts which may be spoilery!
To get your own copy of Cranky Ladies of History, you can buy from our website, order your favourite real world bookshop, or purchase at all the major online booksellers (in print and ebook). We’re so proud of this book – the contributors have produced astonishing stories, and combined with amazing art by Kathleen Jennings and design by Amanda Rainey, it’s simply stunning.
Thank you to our contributors, the Pozible campaign backers, Arts Tasmania, and all those people who have supported us along the way on the Cranky Ladies journey – it’s been a heck of a ride and we’re looking forward to seeing where it goes next!
