Seeking Books About Women Journalists

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 books by and about women journalists.

Each link goes to our Amazon Smile Charity Wish List and purchases from this link will ship directly to our temporary library location in Noblesville, IN.

If you have these books and would like to donate used copies, mail them to our temporary location: Gal’s Guide Library & Research Center, 1393 Wayne Street, Noblesville, IN 46060.

Thank you!
