Join us as we celebrate International Women’s Day this March with Sally Armstrong’s bestselling novel The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor. Charlotte Taylor is our featured author’s ancestor, and while the novel itself is fiction, her story is based upon handed-down pieces of family folklore and government documents.
Using a seamless blend of fact and fiction, Charlotte Taylor’s great-great-great granddaughter, Sally Armstrong, reclaims the life of a dauntless and unusual woman and delivers living history with all the drama and sweep of a novel.
This month’s book club will also introduce you to four women who, like Charlotte Taylor, have had to fight for their rights in the face of adversity. Though each one lives in a different country with different barriers, they all experience discrimination or persecution, not only because they are activists, but also because they happen to be women.
