SHARE

In honor of the anniversary of the epic Women’s March, we just want to give a shout out to all the amazing women taking to the streets again this year!

Now, you may be down the street from the event. You may be taking the bus from Ohio. You may be flying in from across the world. Who knows! But, wherever you are, we want to make sure you’re equipped with some good reads to keep you march-ready on the way there. So, here are three books to read on your way to the Women’s March!

 

1. Blood Water Paint

BloodWaterPaintCOVER

Joy McCullough’s bold novel in verse is a portrait of an artist as a young woman, filled with the soaring highs of creative inspiration and the devastating setbacks of a system built to break her. This read is equal parts mesmerizing and important, and just waiting to join you on your way to the Women’s March!

 

2. Glimmer of Hope

GlimmerOfHopeCover

If ever you needed proof of what a group of united people can do, it’s right here. By the founders of March For Our Lives, Glimmer of Hope tells the story of how a group of teenagers raced to channel their rage and sorrow into action, and went on to create one of the largest youth-led movements in global history. As marches around the world continue to break ground and make change, this is an especially good read for anyone ready to let their voice be heard.

 

3. Hope Nation 

Hope-Nation

We all know the fight doesn’t end when we all disperse and go home, letting our voices be heard is an ongoing battle. In Hope Nation, some of today’s most influential young adult authors come together in this highly personal collection of essays and original stories that offer moments of light in the darkness, and show that hope is a decision we all can make.

 

And don’t forget…

4. SHOUT

SHOUT

This searing, poetic call to action isn’t hitting shelves until March 12–so while it can’t join you for the Women’s March this year, it’ll definitely be the perfect follow-up and reminder to people everywhere: it’s time to #SHOUTTogether
