March is Women’s History Month and our staff has shared a few of their favorite non-fiction books featuring women from our collection!

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone 
by Lori Gottlieb

Mikayla, Circulation Assistant- Scheben:
“Emotional and endearing, this memoir is a dive into a talk therapist’s experience seeing a talk therapist after the end of a long-term relationship, detailing her experiences with her own patients and her experience as a patient herself. I would recommend it as both an intriguing look into therapy, and also as a deeply resonant story about the loss and confusion and heartache everyone can identify with, regardless of psychological expertise.”

by Michelle Obama

Adrianna, Youth Services Associate- Hebron:
“While politics do play a role in her story, Michelle Obama’s memoir is about much more than her husband’s former role as president. Her book is an empowering read about her impressive educational background, her role as the first Black First Lady of the United States, and her goals of uplifting women and girls.”

The Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg 
by Irin Carmon

Dana, Public Service Associate- Main:
“I loved reading about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s early life as a dedicated scholar and wife who continued to follow her passion and was dedicated to women’s rights. Great read!”

Just as I Am 
by Cicely Tyson

Suzanne, Circulation Assistant- Florence:
“I have always liked Cicely Tyson, but I did not know anything about her. She lived an interesting life and had relationships with so many famous, talented people. Ms. Tyson had such a strong sense of self and was not willing to compromise who she was. I enjoyed getting to know her.”

by Tara Westover

Melanie, Adult Outreach Manager:
I like it because she was successful against all odds.”
