More Suggestions for Global Women of Color

Since I posted the new “Booklists and Reviews” page last week, others have offered, or I have found, some extremely useful lists.  I will add these to that page.  Do keep the suggestions coming.

Last year for GWC Teresa @ Reading like I’m feasting created a booklist of Latin American Women Writers available in English.

Another fine source for African American women is Melissa Harris Perry’s Black Feminist Syllabus.

South Asian Women’s Network also has an extensive list of South Asian Women Writers. 

I have also had suggestions for particular books that individuals recommend.

Any of Chitra Divakaruni’s books. India
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki.
Someone Else’s Garden by Dipika Rai.
We Need New Names, by No Violet Bulawayo. Africa
Carpentaria, by Alexis Wright.  Australian Indigenous
My Place, by Sally Morgan. Australian Indigenous
Americanah, by Adichie.  Nigeria and USA
The Bone People, by Keri Hulme. New Zealand Indigenous
