#VOTE100BOOKS at the Hay Festivals

This is the list of books written by women selected for a series of debates being kicked off at the Hay Festival this weekend, and continuing at the Hay Festivals round the world.


The point of lists is that we’d usually like to add more to them.

For example, Buffalo Soldier by Tanya Landman – not only because it’s a Carnegie Medal-winning novel by one of the world’s best writers for young people but also because it is an extraordinary story about female emancipation in the American South.

Which books would you add?
