Card Reveal: Women Writers Bingo

Awogfli announced in this post, a few days ago, a “female authors challenge”, i.e., the intention to include more female writers in her literary intake as from 2018 on.  Others spontaneously signed on, and I promised to create a bingo card for those who want to track their reading progress that way.  So (drumroll) … here it is!

The authors featured in the card, from top left to bottom right:

W   Mary Wollstonecraft
K    Margery Kempe
R    J.K. Rowling
N    Anaïs Nin
Q    Anna Quindlen
G    Ursula Le Guin
O    Edna O‘Brien
E    George Eliot
B    The Brontë Sisters
V    Barbara Vine / Ruth Rendell
H    Hildegard of Bingen
P    Christine de Pizan
XY  Banana Yoshimoto
M   Toni Morrison
Z    Julie Zeh
IJ   Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz
D   Emily Dickinson
L   Jhumpa Lahiri
T    Amy Tan
U   Sigrid Undset
C   Agatha Christie
A   Jane Austen
S   Sappho

I’ve tried to mix early women author pioneers with contemporary authors, Western / white authors with authors of other ethnicities, and authors of literary fiction with authors of other genres (mysteries, fantasy, romance), nonfiction and poetry.  The result is still a bit more Western-centric than I’d have liked, but it’s the best compromise I’ve been able to come up with.

Now I’ll follow Awogfli’s example and put together my tentative reading list …

If anybody else is interested in joining, please do!  The more, the merrier.
