Women Writers

This is a list of all the women writers and their works in the Emory University Online Yellowbacks collection (as of 4/22/11). I have them listed in alphabetical order by the author’s last name unless the author used a pseudonym (and then I alphabetized by that). If I found information on the web regarding the author, you can click on the author’s name to link to that. To access the book, click on the cover image or the book title.
