Coming in like a lion is March, which is Women’s History Month, and this issue of Notes features picture-book biographies about diverse and important women; graphic novels and memoirs starring memorable girls; and female-centered YA historical fiction adventures. The upcoming March/April Horn Book Magazine — the one with this unforgettable cover — has even more. Subscribe and you’ll see!
