Welcome to Page Turner, a new blog on feminism and books here at Bitch's online headquarters.
Here's my goal with Page Turner: to make it a collaboration between you, Bitch's readers, and me, your biblio-obsessed blogger. Page Turner is all about our love of books and feminisms, and all the many ways we interact with authors and their work in our daily lives. I want to know what you want to see in Page Turner, and I especially want to know about the authors you'd love to see featured here, so please post a comment about them. Page Turner will highlight all kinds of genres, and it has a tiny, lovely soft spot for young adult fiction, too, especially any featuring kick-ass teen-feminist avengers with punk-rock sensibilities, or, really, any that's inclusive of all teens' lives, especially those outside the mainstream.
Page Turner will feature a few reoccurring series. One is "Rave On," which debuted this week, a series that, in short, asks feminist writers, activists, musicians, scholars, artists, and others to talk about the books that completely rocked their world. Others include long- and short-form Q&As with authors about their work, feminism, and related issues, and a series that highlights great YA fiction and nonfiction (see above).
Please stay tuned, and thanks for reading.
