Art Books Needed for the Library

Gal’s Guide is building an independent women’s history library and is seeking works by women and about women in various career fields. This month we have a list of 20 books about the history of women artists.

UPDATE: The Gal's Guide Library opened March 6, 2020.

Each link goes to our Amazon Smile Charity Wish List.
