Seeking Books About Women In Music

Gal’s Guide is building an independent women’s history library and is seeking works by women and about women. This month we have a list of books by and about women in music.

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

Each link goes to our Amazon Smile Charity Wish List.

If you have these books and would like to donate used copies
