Damn Feminists - We're Everywhere

I've written before about how delighted I was to be welcomed warmly by feminist writers, something I wasn't entirely expecting. Because my character's brand of feminism is a bit - well, what's the word, perhaps non-standard? - I feared exclusion from the tent.

Was I ever wrong. My girl Stella's found a slew of soul mates, and I couldn't be more delighted.

Today I found out that A BAD DAY FOR SORRY was nominated as a Best Book of 2009 by Guerrilla Girls On Tour, an anonymous theatre collective whose mission is to create new plays that dramatize women’s history and address the current state of women in the performing arts and beyond. Read more about it here.

While we're on the subject, I might as well share that a while back I also got nominated for another honor, inclusion in the Amelia Bloomer Project for 2009. It's an annual booklist of the best feminist books for young readers, ages birth through 18, and a part of the Feminist Task Force of the Social Responsibilities Round Table of the American Library Association. See the nominations here.

Given the current controversy, Stella may have a job to do over at the offices of PW...


I am not surprised at your inclusion - not one bit.

Way to go Stella! (And you too, Sophie!)

Thanks Gary and Linda - and thanks so much to the wonderful anonymous person who brought my attention to the Willa list! What a great idea. :)
