The HerStory Club was born out of a desire to learn more about women who have made a difference, the unsung heroines. For 2022, Knitted Wit's HerStory Club turns its focus to female authors. After the past two years, a no brainer, given one of our favorite things to do besides making - reading. Join us each month as we celebrate a wonderful female author, and introduce you to a good book or two. We're quite excited about the list of fabulous Hers being highlighted this year, and can’t wait to tell their story in color!
