Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on: Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World by Mackenzi Lee
Expected Release Date: March 6th, 2018
Based on Mackenzi Lee’s popular weekly Twitter series of the same name, Bygone Badass Broads features 52 remarkable and forgotten trailblazing women from all over the world. With tales of heroism and cunning, in-depth bios and witty storytelling, Bygone Badass Broads gives new life to these historic female pioneers. Starting in the fifth century BC and continuing to the present, the book takes a closer look at bold and inspiring women who dared to step outside the traditional gender roles of their time. Coupled with riveting illustrations and Lee’s humorous and conversational storytelling style, this book is an outright celebration of the badass women who paved the way for the rest of us.
I really wish this was out now-it would make the perfect Christmas present! I’ve really enjoyed Mackenzi Lee’s #BygoneBadassBroads Twitter series and can’t wait to read the full book. The illustrations look stunning too.
