For International Women’s Day this year I'm taking part in the blog tour for the paperback publication of A Secret Sisterhood, an erudite and engaging celebration of literary friendships between Jane Austen and amateur playwright, Anne Sharp; Charlotte Brontë and the feminist Mary Taylor; George Eliot and Harriet Beecher Stowe; Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield. The book is the product of a contemporary literary friendship between the authors who, in addition to writing and teaching, host the website Something Rhymed, profiling a range of additional female writing buddies.
