Fantasy Fiction With Female Characters


Fantasy Fiction with Female Characters
Courtyard Book Chats, August 4, 2009
Lisa V. (Eiseley Branch Library)

Lisa V. used the Courtyard Book Chats to launch her new book talk, about fantasy fiction (and some science fiction) featuring particularly strong female protaganists. Most of these books are, not unexpectedly, also written by female authors.
