One of the best ways
to recognize and celebrate these remarkable individuals is to read the books that tell their stories.
1. Bold Spirit by Linda Lawrence Hunt
Helga and her daughter Clara completed a trek across the United States with little money, on foot, and in dresses.
2. Incredible Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Henrietta Lacks was born in 1920. In 1951, she had a biopsy done at John Hopkins Medical Center and unwillingly donated her unique cells for research.
3. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
This book isn’t a true story. It is historical fiction set in France during the German occupation. It introduces us to two sisters and depicts how they handle the disruption of war.
4. Rose Code by Kate Quinn
As with her other books, Kate Quinn mixes historical facts with imaginative details to create a story that gives us a sample of what it may have looked like at Bletchley Park in the 1940s.
