“Know Her Words” – VOLUME 1 | Women Writers Committee of PEN International|

Project: Know Her Words is an initiative of PEN International’s Women Writers Committee to highlight the best writing by women writers from around the world.

All PEN Centers were invited to share 10 titles from their country’s best books by women authors to encourage cross-cultural understanding, book clubs between PEN Centers, further readings and author presentations.
According to the instructions we received from PEN International, the list can be made up of any textual genre and it is not necessary to include exclusively books by women members of PEN Greece.
The Board of PEN Greece decided to appoint an independent 3-member committee for the selection of the titles, which was made up of the following, whom we sincerely thank for their kind cooperation and editing of the whole project: Sotiria Georganti, Manolis Pimplis, Katerina Fragou.
