The HerStory Club was born out of a desire to learn more about women who have made a difference, the unsung heroines. For 2023, 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!
For the second year of HerStory Book Club, we are starting in much the same way we finished 2022. Knitted Wit's final theme for 2022 was breaking the burnout cycle many of us find ourselves in, and our first theme for 2023 is building community to feed our souls. Starting and ending with hope and purpose seem like good ways to bookend our club, and we hope you find January's book and author as inspiring as we have.
This month, we are focusing on one of our most-requested HerStory recipients, the inimitable Octavia Butler. Her work has influenced writers for decades, and will undoubtedly continue to do so. The Xenogensis trilogy, also known as Lilith's Brood, is one of Octavia Butler's most popular and enduring work, and we've used
a particularly vibrant version of the cover of book three as our
colorway inspiration this month. Read the love letter to learn more about this amazing woman.
