When writer and artist Joanna Walsh created a set of bookmarks illustrated with her favorite women authors, she was surprised by the positive response. She went on to create a twitter hashtag, #ReadWomen2014, to promote a year of reading women authors. A lot of people have tweeted their favorites, and so we decided to get in on the action. Here is just a small sampling of our favorite female authors, with a Northwest flare, of course.
