Subject Week: “The Power of Women”

March 04, 2024
Subject Week: “The Power of Women”

“The power of a woman comes not from the strength of her body or the shrewdness of her resolve, but in the beauty of her heart, her mind, and her soul. A simple look can brighten the darkest hour. Her touch can warm the coldest of days. Her smile can intoxicate you. Her words can give wealth that the richest man would covet.” – Troy White

Enjoy our selection of books about extraordinary women and their inspiring stories of strength, courage, and perseverance. Happy International Women’s Day!
